Musical To Open 
Summer Season 

Pettaway Production Will 
Revamp 'Cinderella Story 

DO I HEAR A WALTZ? Assistant Director Linda Newman (seated) instructs chorus members Alan Nichols 
and Lynna Hubley in a dance from the Ballroom scene in Act Two of "Cinderella," an original musical 
comedy which opens Tuesday evening for a three-night run in the Little Theatre. Cast members relax 
on platforms which will be part of the set. 

Six Bills Amended 

Senate Delays University Status 
At Least A Year, Says Kilpatrick 

The College's much antici- 
pated promotion to univer- 
sity status is at least a year 
away, Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick 
reported this week. 

Progress toward the granting 
of the university title ground to a 
halt in the State Senate last week 
when an amendment was attach- 
ed to each of the bills which 
would have changed the status of 
six state colleges this fall. 

The amendment re-directs the 
question of the status change to 
a proposed Higher Education 
Coordinating Council, the estab- 
lishment of which must be voted 
on in the general election this 
November. The new council will 
serve to approve any new state 
schools, branches.or expansion of 
programs before they can began. 

"If the council is approved in 
November," Dr. Kilpatrick ex- 
plains, "I forsee no difficulty in 
our eventually becoming a uni- 

The council, which would be 
appointed by the governor, must 
make its recommendaticins within 

College Cancels 
July 5 Classes 

All classes will be dismissed 
Friday, July 5, it has been an- 
ounced by College President Dr. 
Arnolld Kilpatrck.. 

The new announcement extends 
the July 4 holiday through the 
weekend, with classes resuming 
as scheduled Monday, July 8. 

Dr. Kilpatrick also announced 
a change in the final examination 
schedule for the summer session. 
Tests will begin Tuesday, July 30, 
rather than a day earlier as 
previously listed. Finals will con- 
tinue through Thursday, August 

a year after it is authorized, Dr. 
Kilpatrick adds, so the change is 
"at least a year away." 

The original bill had passed 
the State House of Representa- 
tives without change when the 
Senate attached the delaying 
amendment. The change was add- 

ed in the Senate's education com- 

Senator Sylvan Friedman has 
warned that if the House and 
Senate does not "get together" 
on the Senate amendment, the 
change in the status "would prob- 
ably be dead for this session." 

"Cinderella," an original 
musical comedy by Assistant 
Professor of Speech Marc 
Pettaway, will open the Col- 
lege Theatre's summer sea- 
son Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the

"'Cinderella' might be billed. 
is a fairy tale for adults," says 
Pettaway, who staged and direct- 
ed the show as well as collabor- 
ating with Mary June Malus on 
and "music With a contemporary 
the musical adaptation. A script 
which plays on anachronisms 
sound" give the production a 
great appeal for both children 
and mature audiences, Pettaway 
points out. 

A large cast of students, teach- 
ers, and townspeople will be

sistant Carolyn Parker of Balti- 
more, Md., as Lady Lavender, the 
wicked stepmother. Senior vocal

Top U.S. Gymnasts Prepare To Compete Here 
n Olympic Trials Set July 12 -13 In Coliseum 

by Sid Turner 

This campus will be a show- 
place for the best gymnasts 
in the United States when the 
first Olympic trials are held 
July 12-13 at Prather Coli- 

Thirty of the nation's top gym- 
nasts will be vying for the first 
six places at the Los Angeles 
trials in August. The next 14 
winners will compete in the trials 
at Penn State University in early 
August where six more finalists 
will be selected. Only seven gym- 
nasts will be included on the 
Olympic team. 

This year marks the first time 
that a Southern college or uni- 
versity has been chosen to host 
an Olympic gymnastics trial. The 
College was selected despite bids 
by larger schools such as the Uni- 
versity of Southern California 
and Southern Illinois University, 
according to Demon gymnastics 
coach Armando Vega. 

Vega asked for full support of 
the student body in order to re- 
flect a favorable image of the 
school to the many visitors on 
campus. He also asked for special 
support for the two members of 

the Demon squad, ail-American 
Richard Loyd of Alexandria and 
John Ellas of Birmingham, Ala., 
who are excellent candidates for 
advancement to the finals. They 
qualified for competition in the 
trials at the AAU Championships 
last month at Long Beach, Calif. 

Other top competitors include 
Steve Cohen of Penn State. Dave 
Thor of Michigan State, Kanati 
Allen of UCLA, and Bob Lynn 
of the University of Southern 

An Olympic Development Clinic 
will be held on campus for two 
weeks following the trials. The 
top twenty competitors in the 
trials will remain for the clinic. 

Winners will be decided on the 
basis of the combined total of 
each gymnast's "compulsory rou- 
tine scores" and his "optional 
routine scores." There will be 
three sessions of the official 
trials, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. July 
12, and 7:30 p.m. July 13. The 
third session will be the finals. 

Admission to the events will 
be 75 cents for students, 50 cents 
for children, and $1.50 for adults 
An adult ticket for the three 
combined sessions is $2.50. 

OLYMPIC FORM — John Ellas, shown here in action on the rings, will 
join Demon teammate Richard Loyd in competition for a spot on the 
U. S. gympastics squad when the first Olympic trials are held July 
12-13 in Prather Coliseum.

Demons Face Tough. Season 
On Grid Field, Says Gossett 

Although most sports en 
thusiasts are currently wrap- 
ped up in tennis and baseball, 
Head Football Coach Glenn 
Gossett is already looking a- 
head through the hot sum- 
mer months to Sept 14 when 
the Demons will open their 
1968 football season. 

Gossett and his aides have 
already sent the Demon squad 
through the annual spring sched- 
ule which started the ground 
work that will be necessary for 

Athletes Awarded 
For Spring Sports 

The College has awarded var- 
sity letters to 30 athletes who 
participated in spring sports for 
the Demons in 1968. 

Twenty-two monograms went 
to members of Northwestern's 
Gulf States Conference runnerup 
baseball team, with seven going 
to tennis players and five each 
to members of the golf and track 

Receiving letters in baseball 
were Terry Alario, Butch Flores, 
James Gibson, Ed Hartfield, Mike 
Herron, Robert Hetrick, Leroy 
Husser, Randy Johnson, Wayne 
Jowers, John King, Malcolm 
Lewis, Kenny Reed, Gary Schou- 
est, Don Shields, Chuck Soileau, 
Monroe Thompson, Danny Bob 
Turner, Ted Ward, Harry Wil- 
more, and managers Frankie El- 
der and Carter Perry. 

Tennis letters went to Kenny 
Cochran, Steve Esneault, Jimmy 
Genovese, Ray Jackson, Phil 
Richards, Charles Scott, and 
Dean Smith. 

Knute Anderson, Melvin Bur- 
let, Larry Kees, Leroy Sutton and 
Tommy Wilson were the recip- 
ients of the cinder monograms, 
with Chris Baird, Jeff Brown 
Mike Donaldson, Rex Durham 
and Larry Ross getting golf let- 

one of the most attractive NSC 
grid schedules in several sessions. 

What can Demon football fans 
look for in '68? Coach Gossett 
said that next fall's team should 
have improved running and pass- 
ing attacks, good overall speed, 
but will not have the size the 
1967 squad had. 

Perhaps one of the biggest 
problems that will be facing Gos- 
sett and the NSC squad in the 
'68 campaign will be lack of 
depth. Although 29 lettermen 
will be returning in the fall, 
graduation eliminated nine of the 
22 offensive and defensive start- 
ers and a total of 16 monogram 

How Coach Gossett will solve 
these problems and others will 
remain a mystery until Sept. 14, 
when the Demons will be open- 
ing their 1968 football season 
here against Abilene Christian

A College Student's Plight - 

The college student occupies a unique position in our world today. 

Through the eyes of the television camera on the evening news he is a 
long-haired, wild-eyed, radical who achieves his somewhat vague objectives 
through a combination of obscene language and wanton destruction. 

His professors and student government leaders however, sometimes berate 
him for being a docile, apathetic creature whose only claim to activism is an 
occasional protest at the mention of an exam. 

Is there a happy medium? Perhaps not. With pressure from the constant 
assault of teachers, parents, and his local draft board, one cannot really be 
sure whether to speak up for what he believes or sit on the back row and keep 
his mouth shut. 

This newspaper has a responsibility to inform the students of what is hap- 
pening on this campus. We will give our opinion of current issues from time 
to time in this space. 

We do not expect that you will agree with our opinion at all times. It 
would not be significant enough to discuss if everyone agreed on an issue. 

We also do not expect to get immediate action on changes we may suggest. 
In this IBM-oriented society every student knows that he must fill in what 
appears to be thousands of blank spaces before he can achieve anything of im- 

Students run this newspaper and as long as we have the right to speak 
out in a civilized and intelligent manner so does every student who reads our

Wesley Foundation Begins 
Summer Activities Series 

The Wesley Foundation swings 
into their summer activities this 
week with a meeting scheduled 
for 5.30 p.m. Wednesday. 

Supper will be served, followed 
by a discussion entitled "Violence 
in America," led by Richard Galo- 
way of the College faculty. 

Wednesday, July 3, an Inde- 
pendence Day Breakfast will be 
held at 6:30 a.m. at the Wesley 
House. The discussion will be led 
by Loyd Ponder, who will speak 
on "Patriotism." Mr. Ponder is 

a World War II veteran and a 
veteran of the Baatan Death 


The Current Sauce will be pub- 
lished every other week during 
the summer months. Issues will 
have four pages unless otherwise 

Due to the July 4-5 holiday, the 
next edition of the Sauce is 
scheduled for Wednesday, July 3. 

In Theory and Practice 

Arts And Sciences Building Is Uphill Walk With Purpose 

STUDENT STUDIO — Paul Keyser III, a junior physical education 
major from Natchitoches, takes Audio-Visual Center worker Peggy 
Daigre, a junior from Alexandria, on tour through the television con- 
trol room and studio on the first floor of the AnS. More than a 
mile of cable completely encircles the campus, connecting all class- 
room buildings. The A&S alone has more than ce rooms wired for 
closed-circuit television reception. The Center, supervised by Thomas 
Hennigan, also takes in the film library, graphics production facilities, 
and the photography lab. 


MOLECULE MACHINE — Shreveport microbiology major Betty Bald- 
ridge, a participant in the College's undergrad research program, 
watches as Dr. J. L. W. Jackson works the dials of a Model E analyti- 
cal ultracentrifuge in the microbiology laboratory on the first floor 
of the A&S. This type of machine, which can be used to determine 
molecular weights, is in use at only two other schools in the state — 
LSU and Tulane. Dr. Jackson estimated the cost of the ultracentrifuge 
at $50,000. 

by James Cousins 

The College's new Arts 
and Sciences Building, one 
of the largest classroom struc- 
tures in the state, is now 
open to the public. And, as 
many students have already 
discovered, the new stack of 
knowledge is the longest up- 
hill walk to class on campus. 

Scores of offices, laboratories, 
research centers, and activity 
rooms share quarters with four 
floors-full of classroom space de- 
voted to the instruction of a my- 
riad of subjects — here are pro- 
visions for both the practical and 
theoretical exercise of the Arts 
and the Sciences. 

The new building joins a host 
of other additions erected since 
Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick's installa- 
tion as President of the College. 
Most of these new buildings have 
been completed through the co- 
operative use of state and federal 
funds. Both governing bodies 
utilize their right to impose re- 
strictions and regulations on the 
new structures. 


Dr. Lee Tarver, head of the 
Bureau of Research, is making 
final tabulations to determine 
whether the Arts and Sciences 
Building is the single largest 
classroom building in Louisiana. 
"We certainly have a candidate 
for that title," Dr. Tarver be- 

More important are the impres- 
sive improvements in almost 
every department involved in the 
general migration to "the A&S." 
A survey of the building's re- 
sources would be a major under- 
taking — but focus on a few speci- 
fics can illustrate the wide range 
of ingenuity and inspiration the 
new facilities will offer students 
and teachers. 


A well-equipped microbiology 
laboratory, the brainchild of Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu, is used with the 
intensity of a newly-organized 
medical school. Dr. Bienvenu, 
dean of the recently-formed 
School of Science and Technology, 
has for several years been en- 
gaged in specialized research on 
brucellosis, a disease of cattle 
which has serious effects on the 
agricultural economy of Louisi- 
ana. Aid in Federal funds and

COMPUTER CLASSES — Dr. Bobby Waldron, supervisor of the 
Computing Center, talks with graduate student Deeann Pittman, a 
business education major from Baton Rouge, across an 1130 Com- 
puting System central processing unit. This medium scale computer 
is in use this summer in Deann's Computer Science 500 class, an 
experimental course designed to prepare students to teach Computer 
Science at the high school level. The College's new Computer Center 
occupies approximately 3300 square feet of space in the A&S.

Both the European tour and 
the United States trip begin Aug. 
1 and continue through Aug. 23. 

Mrs. Jane Nahm, tour director, 
said 39 persons have already 
signed for the trip to the East- 
ern U. S., and only 44 vacancies

Cheerleaders Leave 
As Clinic Concludes 


All classes will be dismissed 
Friday, July 5, it has been an- 
nounced by College President Dr. 
Arnold Kilpatrick. 

The new announcement extends 
the July 4 holiday through the 
weekend, with classes resuming 
as scheduled Monday, July 8. 

Dr. Kilpatrick also announced 
a change in the final examination 
schedule for the summer session. 
Tests will begin Tuesday July 30, 
rather than a day earlier as pre- 
viously listed. 

The third of the College's 
three one-week sessions of 
the annual cheerleader school 
is drawing to a close on cam- 
pus as cheerleaders from all 
over the state head for home, 
well-prepared for the fall 
football season. 

The three sessions have drawn 
a record 1,246 students from 
some 175 schools. The first ses- 
sion, which ended on June 14, 
had 366 participants. The second 
session, beginning c/i June 16 
and continuing through June 21, 
attracted 404 cheerleaders. The 
final session, which began June 
23 and is concluding today, had 
a record 474 participants. 

The classes were conducted by 
a dozen instructors from the 
National Cheerleaders Associa- 
tion of Dallas, Tex. The young 
participants, representing both 
junior and senior high school's, 
were taught tumbling stunts, how 
to conduct pep rallies, how to 
compose yells and chants, skits 
for rallies and games, school 
spirit programs and other facets 
of cheerieading. 

During the day, the cheerlead- 
ers followed an exhausting rou- 
tine of learning, practicing, and 
constant yellimg, with only brief 
intervals for food and rest. They 
were constantly judged by their 
instructors on spirit and ability 
and competition ran high. 

At the end of each session, 
awards were given to first, sec- 
ond and third place winners in 
large group and small group com- 
petition. Ribbons were given 
throughout the clinic for out- 
standing cheers and routines. 

Entertainment for the cheer- 
leaders was provided in the form 
of movies. One group saw the 
Pilgrim Twenty Singers when 
they appeared in Prather Coli- 

Dean of Men Leonard Nichols, 
who has been in charge of this 
year's school, said that more 
cheerleaders than ever before 
showed up for the three weeks 
of camp. He also said that an 
additional week, making four ses- 
sions, is being considered for next 

'Not What, But How!' 

Teaching Group Pioneers In Study 
Of Scientific Approach In Schools 

By Linda Towry 

A group of 27 primary 
school teachers from north 
and central Louisiana will be 
the pioneers of a new method 
of teaching science to ele- 
mentary school children. Sci- 
ence - A Process Approach is 
the subject of a two-week 
shop being sponsored by the 
College and the Supplemen- 
tary Education Center. 

Developed by the American 
Association for the Advancement 
of Science, this approach has in- 
volved more than a hundred sci- 
entists and educators in its grow- 
th. Ours is the first state support- 
ed school ever to teach the new 
method of science education. 

Mr. Jerry Miller of the Supple- 
mentary Education Center, As- 

sistant Director of the two-week 
workshop, explained the purpose 
of Science - A Process Approach 
in this way. "To teach not what 
to think, but how to think!" 

The workshop, which concludes 
today, has included conferences, 
lectures, and demonstrations. 
Specialists from all over the na- 
tion who have done most of the 
teaching are David Butts, Uni- 
versity of Texas; Sydnyanna Wil- 
son, University of Texas; Robert 
Bernoff, Pennsylvania State Uni- 
versity; and George Katagiri, 
Oregon State. 

Like other science education 
programs, this one is based on 
the belief that understanding the 
scientific approach to learning is 
very important to the general edu- 
cation of any child. According to 
AAAS, the procedures of scien- 

tific inquiry learned not as a set 
of basic rules and laws but rather 
as ways of finding answers can be 
applied without limit. 

In addition to the usual subject 
matter related to science itself, 
the process approach olso in- 
cludes elements of math, geome- 
try, language, and contributes to 
the learning of other subjects in 
elementary education. 

The advocates of Science - A 
Process Approach believe that 
when applied, this method will 
provide a higher standard of 
learning in the field of science 
among elementary-age students. 

After learning the new science 
education approach, the 27 pio- 
neer teachers plan to try it in 
their own classes in the fall and 
introduce other teachers to the

Enrollment Rises 
ToS ummerHigh 

The highest summer regis- 
tration in the College's his- 
tory was recorded this se- 
mester with 3,409 students 
enrolled, an increase of 252 
over last summer's enroll- 

With the largest graduate 
school of any institution under 
the State Board of Education, 
the College boasts 1,223 students 
working toward graduate de- 
grees this summer. This, accord- 
ing to President Kilpatrick, is 
an increase of more than 14 per- 
cent over last summer's Gradu- 
ate School enrollment. 

Kilpatrick said more than 200 
of the graduate students are 
working toward a Specialist De- 
gree or Doctor's Degree. 

A breakdown in the summer 
enrollment shows a total of 2,074 
women and 1,335 men. Enroll- 
ment by schools is 296 in Busi- 
ness, 320 in Liberal Arts, 992 in 
Education, 231 in Nursing, 347 
in Science and Technology and 
1,223 in the Graduate School. 

Since 1960, summer enroll- 
ment has increased by more than 
1,500 students. President Kilpat- 
rick said of this year's record 
enrollment, "We are indeed 
proud of the tremendous in- 
crease in enrollment at North- 
western this summer. We are es- 
pecially happy about the fact 
that so many students have chos- 

en our Graduate School for their 
advanced study. Certainly, North- 
western continues to be a leader 
in education in Louisiana." 

Housing Director C. L. Starnes 
said 1,425 students are living 
on campus this summer. This is 
also a record. Of that total, 935 
are women, and 490 are men. 
Campus Security reports that a 
record number of 1,610 cars are 
registered on campus. 

Olympic Tickets 
Available Soon 

Student tickets for the Olympic 
Trials to be held in Prather Col- 
iseum July 12-13 will go on sale 
Monday morning in the Student 
Union Building. 

Coach Armando Vega of the 
Demon gymnastics squad has 
urged all students to support the 
two entrants from the college, 
Richard Loyd and John Ellas, by 
attending the trials. "I would 
rather see the coliseum filled 
with students than with visitors," 
Vega asserted. 

Studenit admission for the 
trials will be 75 cents. Admission 
for adults will be $1.50, and 50 
cents for children. Students 
should purchase tickets as soon 
as possible since the demand is 
expected to exceed the supply. 

GOING HOME — President Arnold Kilpatrick is shown here present- 
ing the first place award to cheerleaders from St. Aloysuis High 
School of New Orleans during the first session of the annual College- 
sponsored Cheerleader Clinic. All first and second place winners 
during the three weeks of camp have been invited to return to the 
campus on Oct. 12 to assist Demon Cheerleaders at the annual Mom 
and Dad's Day Game. According to Dean of Students Dudley Fulton, 
70 Cheerleaders will return.

Add Fun And Creativity 

Use Of Art In Classrooms Is Aim 
Of Workshop, Two- Day Exhibit 

By James Cousins 

Art Workshop 404. 

That's what it's called— but 
if you take the "work" out 
and replace it with "fun" and 
"creativity," you have what it 
really is. 

Art Workshop 404, conducted 
by Dr. Orville J. Hanchey, head 
of the Art Departmeint, has pro- 
duced some very distinctive dis- 
plays of are directed toward the 
primary school level. 

"Most of the people in the 
workshop have had no contact 
with art one way or the other, 
and most of them will USE it 
now that they have had this train- 
ing," comments Dr. Hanchey. 

The course is offered every 
summer. This semester's enroll- 
ment is unusually small, but pro- 
ductive. "Our purpose in the 
workshop for those going into 
the classroom is to simply give 
Uhem a better background for 
the workable use of art," Han- 
chey explains. The workshop is 
taken by many graduate students 
for teacher certification and 
graduate credit. 

There will be an exhibit Tues- 
day and Wednesday in the Stu- 
dent Union Lobby of all the work 
completed at the workshop. The 
exhibited projects will include 
print-making, posters, paintings, 
and ceramics. 

Murals in colored tissue paper 
.and glue, deputing fairy Tlale 
themes, paper mache animals, 
and foreign culture and domestic 
reading aids will be featured at 
the exhibit. 

Animated posters slanted with 
educational messages towards 
safety and health are a special 
category for the exhibit. 

"The workshop gives the teach- 
er something of real value to 

take with them back to the class- 
room," Dr. Hanchey says in sum- 
mary. "Basic knowledge of art ap- 
preciation is one of the bast ways 
to relate to students." 

Credit, Finance, Management Discussed 
At Home Economics Workshop Course 

A special course concerning 
consumer credit and family fi- 
nance sponsored by the Home 
Economics Department will con- 
tinue on campus through July 12. 

The course is designed to ac- 
quaint the student with subject 
matter believed essential to wise 
consumer buyipg and manage- 
ment of family income. 

High school teachers taking 
the course will work with both 
adult homemakers and high 
school students in areas of money 

management when they return 
to their schools. 

Particular attention is focused 
on information recognized by 
National and State level work- 
shops on consumer credit as es- 
sential for today's hcimemaker 
and home economist. 

The director of the course is 
Mrs. Maxine Sutherland and 
special consultant is Mrs. La-

namics at the University of Mis-

"The Subject Was Roses" traces 
several days in the life of a fa- 
ther, a mother, and their son, 
who has just returned from the

lack of communication and the 
failing attempts at closeness and 
love between the three members 
of the family. 

The drama won the Pulitzer 
Prize in 1965, and was voted 
"Best Play of the Year" by the 
New York Drama Critics. The 
New York Times called it "an 
honest and touching work, with 
simplicity, humor and integrity,"

Because Of That Shoe . . . And Friends 

Cast Crews Shine In Pettaway's 'Cinderella 

By Alice Anne Conner 

"It happened because of 
that shoe..." and because of 
the combined efforts of over 
sixty dedicated students, in- 
structors and townspeople. 

We're speaking, of course, 
of "Cinderella/' the College 
Theatre's first production of 
the summer season which 
closed last night after a tre- 
mendously successful three- 
night run to capacity houses. 

A snapped-up version, of the 
old familiar fairy tale, the music- 
al was written and directed by 
the College's, own Marc Petta- 
way, asistant professor of 
speech, along with Mary June 
Malus of Lake Charles, La. 

Of course, the story remained 
basically the same — poor little 
rich girl with fairy god mother 
marries handsome prince and 
lives happily, etc. — but there 
the resemblance to the original 
ends We learn, in this version, 
fhat' Cinderella (or "Ella") 
doesn't have mice for friends at 
all. In fact, she abhors them. And 

Geology Group 
Travels U.S. In 
Field Studies 

Eight students have left the 
campus to work in geology fleid 
camps throughout the United 
States this summer. 

The field study courses are be- 
ing offered by four colleges and 

James Wallace of Shreveport 
and Harry Stewart of Alexandria 
are studying in camps located in 
Colorado. These camps are spon- 
sored by Louisiana State Univer- 
sity and Colorado State. 

Art Webb of Natchitoches is 
in a camp located in the moun-

being sponsored by Miami Uni-

The students will study the 
methods used by geologists to 
map and describe rock forma- 
tions and structures of various 
areas. They will also attend clas-

her fairy-god-mother is a real 
swinger who is quite taken with 
her own reflection. 

The show is also different in 
that the action is centered around 
the "wicked step-mother," Lady 
Lavender — and justly so. Mrs. 
Lavender, played to absolute per- 
fection by graduate assistant 
Carolyn Parker, has got to be 
the hottest of the "red hot ma- 

Mrs. Parker kept the audiences 
in stitches every time she utter- 
ed a syllable. Her renditions of 
"Mirror, Mirror," (in which she 
almost makes love to said mir- 
ror), and "Think Mad Mod, and 
Marvie" (where she gives advice 
to her not-so-lovely daughters as 
to what is "in" in the world of 
hifcbandi-chasingX were sheer 

Equally charming were the 
characters of Gazella and Ara- 
bella, superbly brought to life by 
Nancy Craft and Donna Westen- 
barger, respectively. We felt that 
Miss Westenbarger was a bit too 
pretty to be believable as an ugly 
step-sister, but the sparkling 
talents shown in her acting, 
dancing and singing were enough 
to make up for her appearance. 

Miss Craft, on the other hand, 
(With the help of broad clown 
make-up), looked, acted — and 
indeed became — the epitome of 
the terrible step-mother. Gazella 
stole the show whenever she 
opened her mouth. Her musical 
antics in "We've Been Invited to 
a Party" brought an tears of 
laughter from the audience and 
her "dainty combat boots" 
brought down the house. 

Although we see her less in 
this production than in the ori- 
ginal story, Cinderella is basical- 
ly unchanged. She is still mis- 
treated afid misunderstood but 
sweet and good nevertheless.

Prince Charming, played by 
Wade Daigle, is still handsome 
and still seeking his dream girl. 
Dagle makes a handsome prince 
indeed, and acts his way through 
his song admirably, even without 
a professional singling voice. His 
charming appearance alone is 
enough to warrent his desirabil- 
ity by the eligible ladies of the 

Speaking of the ladies of the 
Kingdom, we can go no further 
without mentioning the chorus, 
composed of Judy Braswell, 
Glenda Taylor, Beverly Nowell, 
Loretta Sullivan, Lynna Hubley, 
Byron Nail, David Mitchell, Al- 
lan Nichols, Carl Hudnell and 
Jimmy Ouzts. These young peo- 
ple are superb. They successfully 
carry out their activities without 
taking away from the oomph of 
the show. Director Pettaway is 
to be commmended for taking 
such unlikely-looking college stu- 
dents and transforming them into 
the fast-moving ladies and gentle- 
men of the magic kingdom.

A review without mentioning 
the glorious costumes and the at- 
tractive sets would be unforgiv- 
able. Mrs. Francis York, we see 
on our program, is the genius be- 
hind the costumes. The dazzling 
colors of the ballroom scene and 
the charmingly subdued attire of 
the servants of the Lavender 
household combine to make the 
show believable even when we 
know it isn't. 

The set, by Associate Professor 
of Speech Ray Schexnider, was a 
masterpiece of craftsmanship. 
The combination of fantasy and 
reality in the set combined per- 
fectly with the same qualities im 
the script. 

The music, composed by direc- 
tor-of-all-trades Pettaway, was 
brought to life by a talented 
group of musicians including Jim 
O'Quinn, Rick Jonas, Bill Coner- 
ly, G. T. Spence, and Les Steele. 
We did feel at times however, 
that the group sounded a bit like 
a Bourbon Street band at a jazz 

In all, the most exciting aspect 
of the program was the fact that 
NSC presented an original pro- 
duction, put it together in the 
brief span of two weeks and did 
it beautifully. From this, we can- 
not help but sense a new and 
exciting attitude forming in the 
drama department — and we hope 
to see more of it.

In Coliseum 
Is Enlarged 

The basketball court at Pra- 
ther Coliseum is being widened 
approximately seven and one- 
half feet cm each side to allow 
more playing room for intramur- 
al sports and physical education 

The work being done at the 
Coliseum will increase the num- 
ber of basketball courts to three 
and will also increase the num- 
ber of badminton courts for stu- 
dent use. 

The width of the court will be 
76 feet compared to its present 
width of 60 feet. This increased 
width will also permit volleyball 
courts to be used im the Coliseum. 

The Demon basketball team 
will still use the center court for 
their home games. However the 
extra goals will mean more prac- 
tice room for the cagers.

The most outstanding gym- 
nasts in the United States be- 
gan arriving on campus early 
this week to prepare for the 
Olympic trials which begin 
tomorrow afternoon at 1 o'- 
clock in Prather Coliseum. 
Other sessions will be held 
tomorrow at 7 p.m. and Satur- 
day at 7:30 p.m. 

Thirty gymnasts from through- 
out the natiotn will be competing 
for a place on the U. S. Olympic 
squad and a trip to the Olympics 
in Mexico City this fall. 

The first six place winners in 
the trials here will automatically 
qualify for the final trials in Los 
Angeles in August. The next 14 
place winners here will qualify 
to compete in the trials at Pen- 
nsylvania State University in 
early August. The six winners at 
Penn State will also travel to Los 
Angeles for the finals. 

Seven gymnasts and six regular 
members and one alternate will 
then be chosen for the U. S. 
Olympic team. 

The top twenty qualifiers dur- 
ing competition at Prather Coli- 
seum will remain on the campus 
for two weeks at an Olympic 
Development Clinic where they 
will train under the expert eyes 
of Demon gymnastic coach Ar- 
mando Vega and Olympic team 
coach Jack Beikner. 

This year is the first time that 
a southern college or university 
has been chosen to host an Olym- 
pic gymnastic trial, and the 3,200- 
seat Coliseum is expected to be 
well filled for all three sessions. 

The College will be adequately 
represented by two well-known 
competitors, Richard Loyd and 
John Ellas. Loyd has twice been 
named to the Ail-American gym- 
mastics team and Ellas played a 
major part in guiding the De- 
mon gymnastics squad to it's 
second consecutive NAIA nation- 
al championship this year. 

Both Loyd and Ellas qualified 
for competition in the trials by 
their excellent performances at 
the Amature Afheletic Union 
championships which were held 

at Long Beach, Calif, this spring. 
Loyd hails from Alexandria and 
Ellas resides in Birmingham^ 

Vega has asked for full sup- 
port of the two contenders from 
the college and gives both ath- 
letes "an excellent chance" to 
qualify in the Coliseum Student

a brisk rate in the Student Union

throughout the area will be on 
campus tomorrow for the event.

Kanati Allen of UCLA, and Bob 
Lynn from the University of 
Southern California.

"The Mouse That Roared", a 
comedy starring Peter Sellers 
and Jean Seberg, will be shown 
Wednesday, July 17 at 7:30 p.m. 
in the Student Union Ballroom. 

Admission will be 50 cents. A 
cartoon, "Guided Muscle", will 
also be on the bill. 

THE MAN TO BEAT — John Ellas is a study in concentration as he trains for a spot on the U.S. Olympic 
team in competition tomorrow and Saturday at the Olympic trials here. Ellas helped guide the Demon 
gymnastics squad to their second consecutive NAIA national championship this year. The first session 
of the trials will be held tomorrow afternoon.

A New Kind Of Game 

Gymnastics will probably never replace baseball as our 
national pastime. It's hard to picture the average fan sitting 
in an indoor arena with a can of beer in his hand cheering 
loudly for his favorite gymnast. 

Spectators tend to watch a gymnast with held breath, open 
mouth, and an occassional grunt of disbelief. 

There isn't the kind of man-to-man confrontation and phys- 
ical contact that is found in baseball and football. There is, 
on the other hand, the drama of man against himself. The 
coordination and split-second timing which every gymnast 
must employ demands planning and dedication that perhaps 
no other sport requires. 

In Russia and the European countries especially, gymnast- 
ics has achieved the importance that football and the other 
"major" sports are enjoying in this country. 

The United States is gradually beginning to see the light 
as far as gymnastics is concerned, however. Like soccer, 
which is slowly but surely gaining support here, gymnastics is 
becoming more and more popular, especially in the west and 
the northeast. 

The fact that this college has achieved enough recognition 
in the sport to attract the Olympic trials is evidence that it's 
popularity is spreading to the rest of the country. 

Students will have the rare opportunity to see "the best of 
the best" today and tomorrow. That is, the best athletes in 
a sport that requires excellence for the average participant. 

Richard Loyd and John Ellas, our representatives at the 
trials, have proven themselves worthy of student support. 
Certainly we should give them that support by attending the 

We should remember also, however, that every one of 
these athletes is fighting for a spot on the team which will 
represent our country against the best that the rest of the 
world has to offer, at a time when our country sorely needs 
to assert it's greatness. 

See you there.

Teaching Center Will 
Present New Concept 

by James Cousins 

The ground is broken and 
another modernistic land- 
mark begins to take shape on 
our campus. Excavation and 
foundation procedures began 
last week on the College's 
new Teacher Education Cen- 

Because of the center's remote 
location north of the Sabine- 
Rapides dorm complex, it has 
been dubbed by some students 
"NSCH"— NSC at Hagewood. But, 
in spite of the fact that the addi- 
tion may seem nearer the Natchi- 
toches suburbs than the the heart 
of campus, the Teacher Education 
Center is destined to become an 
integral part of the College's aca- 
demic program. 

The new concept in education 
represented by the building has 
drawn acclaim from experts from 
all over the nation. Counsultants 
from the University of Tennessee 
have aided in the designing of 
the structure and, along with Dr. 
Barney L. Kyzar, head of the Col- 
lege School Planning Laboratory, 
have been instrumental in guid- 
ing each step of the planning for 
the center. 

A steering committee compos- 
ed of top administrative officials 
have worked for almost two 
years with departmental sub-com- 
mittees to make their dream of 
a NSC Teacher Education Cen- 
ter a reality. 

Construction of the 70,000- 

square-foot structure composed of 
four pod-like wings is now being 
started on the ridge behind 
Rapides Hall. 

Administrative offices; a guid- 
ance and counseling center; facili- 
ties for educating the retarted; 
experimental classes for grades 
one through eight; a kindergar- 
ten; classes for secondary educa- 
tion in social sciences, language 
arts, and math and science — all 
of these will be provided in the 
clover structure. 

With the completion of "NS- 
CH", our college will unquestion- 
ably be one of the best equipped 
education centers in the United

Richard Loyd and John El- 
las will be just two of 30 ath- 
letes who will be competing 
this week for the right to 
represent the U.S. in the Oc- 
tober Olympic Games in 
Mexico City. 

A steady stream of the nation's 
top performers from Connecticut 
to California will be battling 
NSC's aces for that privilege. 
Forecasters have picked four or 
five to watch out for at the trials. 

High on many lists is Sid Freu- 
denstein. the key man in Califor- 
nia's drive this year to the NCAA 
gymnastics title. A floor exer- 
cise specialist, Freudenstein was 
a member of the 12-man U.S. 
team taking part in the Pan- 
American games in Vancouver. 

Another nationally-noted gym- 
nast is Dave Thor of Michigan 
State, named winner of last year's 
coveted Nissen Award as the top 
individual gymnast at the NCAA 
championships. Thor was the 
second MSU recipient in the 
three-year history of the award. 

Steve Hug, a muscular 16-year- 
old from Lost Angelest, is by far 
the youngest gymnast at the 
trials, but certainly not the least 
promising. Hug began his gym- 
nastic career when he was 10. In 
1967 he won the all-round 
championship in the pre-Olympic 
trials at Paseadena, Calif. 

First Lt. Terry Higgins, a gym- 
nast instructor at the U. S. Air 
Force Academy, will be another 
top competitor. Ron Clemmer will 
represent West Point at the trials. 

The last three men to join the 
competition were Dan Garcia and 
Rich Grigsby of Los Angeles and 
Mike Kimball of Utah. Garcia, 
who qualified in the Pan-Ameri- 
ican Games, and Grigsby, 1967 
NCAA horizontal bar champ, are 
two of the West Coast's top gym- 

Kimball, a relative newcomer 
on the national gymnastic scene, 
is a darkhorse in the trials. 

These men will be some of the 
stars in this week's Coliseum 

New Club To

fellowship of Christian college 
students. There are chapters on 
many college and university cam- 
puses throughout the nation. 

"The purpose of the IVCF is 
to promote active Christian liv- 
ing in today's changing world by 
presenting the never-changiing 
teaching of Christ", according to 
Joe Rondeau, who is attempting 
to create a chapter of the organ- 
ization at the College.

ganizing a chapter here should

INCREDIBLE AGILITY— Floor exercise specialist Sid Freudenstein 
of the University of California at Berkely helped his school to this 
year's NCAA gymnastics title by placing third in all-around, first in

will compete at Penn State and 
these 12 winners will meet in 
Los Angeles to determine who 
will be placed on the seven- 
member Squad to represent this 
country in Mexico City. 

Firm Grip 

Loyd had a firm grip on first 

place going into the final event, 
the horizontial bar, normally one 
of his strongest routines. How- 
ever, his timing was a fraction 
off and Thor moved ahead in a 
thrilling climax to two days of 
pressure-ridden competition.

Conference all-around champion 
and finished the trials with a 
tital score of 107.55 for the six

A-V Center Has Fast-Moving History 

By Phil Richards 

The Visual Aids Department 
began its operations in the fall 
semester of 1955. At that time its 
director, Thomas L. Hennigan, 
had only a small film library and 
a few pieces of audio-visual 
equipment to work with. 

Today the Audio Visual center 
on the first floor of the new Arts 
and Sciences Building is one of 
the best, most efficiently equipp- 
ed divisions of learning the Col- 
lege has to offer. 

The Center's history is short 
but fast-moving In 1956 a campus 
photography service began mak- 
ing pictures for the Current 
Sauce, Potpourri, and the News 
Bureau. The Center gained facil- 
ities for making motion pictures. 

In 1960 the first closed-circuit 
television system in any college 
or university in Louisiana was 
added. Another milestone came 
in 1968 whem the center moved to 
its present location in the A&S. 

Today the film library includes 
almost 5000 rolls of film which 
are available for use throughout 
the state. They may be checked 
out by schools, educational serv- 
ices, or religious organizations 
free of charge. 

The growing television program 
is expected soon to include both 
psychology and freshman orien- 
tation classes. New equipment 
has made possible the production 
of audio and broadcast video 
tape, which may be sent to local 
commercial television stations for

Lost And Found 
Listings Climb 

A number of articals belong- 
ing to NSC students and staff 
have been turned in to Lost and 
Found according to Mrs. Ethel 
Scroggins. These belongings may 
be claimed at the Information 
Office at the Student Union by 
providing proper identification. 

A partial listing of articles 
turned in during the Summer, 
1968 semester include: a Social 
Security Card ...Gorden S. Wil- 
liams; 2 sets of car keys Ford 

and Mercury; 1 Library Card; 
1 watch; 1 gold bracelet; 1 pair 

of men's glasses one belonging

College Costs Up 
At Most Schools 

The cost of attending a private 
four-year college 10 years from 
today probably will be about 30 
percent higher than it is now, 
according to the U. S. Office of 
Education. At public institutions, 
the increase over the next decade 
is expected to be about 20 per- 

These projections are based 
on the assumption that institut- 
find it necessary to adjust their 
charges are approximately the 
same rate as during the past ten 

Tuition and fees - major fact- 
ors in the cost climb - are likely 
to be 43 percent higher by 1976- 
77 at private four-year colleges 
and 32 percent higher at public 
institutions, the Office said. 

21-4 for three years. 

With a perfectly timed throw 
to first, head football coach Glenn 
Gossett has picked off one of the 
most sought-after halfbacks in the 
state in Erick Kilpatric. The Air- 
line speedster rushed for more 
than 1,300 yards and scored 19 
touchdowns last year in leading 
his team to the AAA champion- 

Among Kilpatric's duly-earned 
awards were the Shreveport-Bos- 
sier City All-City squad twice, 
the 1-AAA all-district team twice, 
and, in his senior year, berths 
on the AAA all-state team and on 
the All-Southern Team. 

Rodney Scooter is already well- 
known to the Natchitoches area 
baseball fans. Last summer while 
pitching for Alexandria in the 
Pelican League, he struck out 
the last 16 batters in a game 
against the Natchitoches team. 

This past spring Sooter breezed 
74 would-be sluggers and threw 
five one-hitters for a 1.11 ERA. 

Weighing in at 188 pounds, 
Kilpatric picked Northwestern 
from more than 20 offers in foot-

The class is taught the rudi- 
ments of handling the expensive 
twin lens reflex camera, which 
is the standard camera used by 
the college photo lab. 

Darkroom techniques are among 
the most impostant facets of the 
course. Working in total dark- 
ness is an awkard process and 
has required a great deal of 
patience and practice. The stu- 
dents must learn to operate 
quickly and efficiently in the dark 

Taking the picture is the part 
of photography which is most 
familiar to the general public, 
and the photography students 
have found it to be much more 
complicated than imagined. A

Of Potpourri 

Gail Dooley, of Bossier City, 
and Linda Green, of Natchito-

The play centers around a 
bachelor uncle who had been 
left the responsibility of raising 
his precocious nephew. The uncle 
has tired of writing cheap comedy 
for children's TV programs and 
now finds himself unemployed. 
With all this spare time he finds 
the time to do all the things 
he wanted to do. However a New 
York social service team thinks 
that this is not the proper en- 
viroment for a young child and 
request that the uncle return to 
work. The uncle then proceeds 
to solve many problems of the 
social service team. Then instead 
of working he might marry one 
of the social service workers. The 
only certain fact is that he is 
a cheerful, nonconformist. 

Season tickets are available 
from Dr. Edna West or any of 
the Davis Players for $3. Tickets 
at the door will $1 per perfor- 
mance for non-students and stud-

Fowler Named 
Vice President 

A bit of fancy political foot- 
work enabled the Student Gov- 
ernment Association Monday 
night to appoint Bill Fowler to 
the vacated position of Vice 
President of the SGA. 

Fowler, a senior from Atlanta 
stepped into the position which 
had been left empty by Jamie 
Fair, who was elected in general 
elections last spring but is now 
ineligible to hold the office. 

The SGA was unanimous in its 
desire to appoint Fowler to the 
position, but was thwarted at 
first by Fowler's ineligibility. 
Qualifications fdr appointment 
included membership in the 
SGA, a standard which Fowler 
did not meet. 

A solution to the problem was 
offered by Tony Rispoli, who 
suggested that one of the Senior 
officers might resign, leaving a 
vacancy that Fowler was quali- 
fied to fill. This would make 
Fowler a member of the SGA 
and eligible for the position of 
Vice President. 

Rispoli's suggestion was im- 
mediately adopted and Scotty 
Maxwell resigns his position as 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Sen- 
ior class. Fowler was then elect- 
ed to fill the vacancy left by 
Maxwell and only moments later 
was removed from this office to 
that of Vice President. Scotty 
Maxwell was then duly elected to 
fill the vacated Sec. Treasurer 

The SGA also heard Charles 
Skinner speak. Skinner, newly 
appointed editor of the Current 
Sauce, made a plea for more co- 
operation between the SGA and 
the Sauce. 

Reports were heard from the 
chairmen of the committees for 
Tech weekend and the State 
Fair elections. Tony Rispoli re- 
ported an inquiry he and SGA 
President Henry Burns had re- 
ceived from Louisiana Tech SGA 
representatives concerning a pos- 
ible relay race to Shreveport on 
the day of the Tech-Northwest- 

ern game in October. Charles 
Balliro was appointed to head a 
committee to look into the pos- 
sibilities of such a race. 

It was also suggested that the 
sale of donuts be allowed in the 
dormitories and Bruce Kevil 
was designated to investigate the 
matter before any action was 

The school sprit committee 
chairman, Garland Riddle, mov- 
ed that the SGA outlaw the use 
of microphones at the ballgames 
by the various fraternities. He 
argued that the cheerleaders 
were being led by the crowd and 
were forced to complete with the 
Greeks. After discussion, Rid- 
dle's motion was turned down, 
and it was suggested that the 
school sprit committee try to 
get microphones for the cheer- 
leaders. Riddle was also instruct- 
ed to see if the old Demon head, 
damaged last year by vandals, 
could be repaired. 

Vice-President were : Stephen 
Bonnin, Welsh; Sherry Brashear, 
Baker; Katherine Cochran, An- 
nacoco; Marvin Wiley Lee, De- 
Ridder; Tommy McCullough, 
Mansfield; Douglas William 
Marx, DeRidder; Clifton Elwood 
Miller, Mansfield; and Davis 
Wayne Mitchell, Robeline. 

Competing for the office of 
Secretary-Treasurer are : Donna 
Battle, Zachary; Rosemary Prin- 
gle, Natchitoches; Rebecca Rich- 
ard, Shreveport; and Linda Sep- 
ulvato, Zwolle. 

In the race for the position of 
Women's Representative are: 
City; Margaret Middleton, 
Shreveport; Sandra Raines; 
Charyl Ramsey, Mansfield; and 
Cynthia Ann Riser, Castor. 

Competing for the office of 
Men's Representative are Jack- 
son Baily, Alexandria; Donald 
Couvillioni, Alexandri; Michael 
East, Zachary; and Donnie Mar- 
tin, Achland. 

Ten Fresmen associates will 
be chosen from among the 18 
who have filed for the office. In 
contention for the jobs are: 
Wayne Bolton, Rhonda Sue Cole- 
man, Christina Conine, Denise 
Cox, Dorothy Jean Fair, Mary

by the elections board involved 
much work as the pictures of

nees contacted, and the election

votes counted. 

Members of the SGA and SGA

Aims, Policies 
And Away We Go 

It is always good at the beginning of any enterprise 
to set forth for those concerned a set of aims and policies. 
This especially holds for the Current Sauce which has 
been the recent source of heated controversy and 

Without getting involved in any personality dis- 
putes, (for the whole story is available to any person in- 
terested enough to read the SGA Minutes), the Current 
Sauce staff feels the need to clearly and concisely 
state its editorial objectives: 

a. To report the news in and around the campus 
accurately and without bias. 

b. To serve as an organ of the students in the ex- 
pression of campus opinion through letters to the editor 
and feature articles. 

c. To seek the betterment of the NSC campus and 
student body with every means at our disposal. 

d. To boost school spirit with sports coverage in 
both the varsity and intramural areas. 

The Current Sauce will not however become repre- 
sentative of any particular group on the campus but 
will seek to become truly the voice of the students on 
this campus.

Dear Editor: 

I am in hopes that relations 
between the Current Sauce and 
the Student Government Associa- 
tion will be more harmonious 
than in the past. 

I would anticipate all SGA 
business will be covered ac- 
curately and completely in order 
that the Student Body know just 
what we are considering doing. 

If at some time the Student 
Government moves along lines 
which are not beneficial to the 
greatest number of students, it 
should be the duty of the Cur 
rent Sauce to call attention of 
the Student Body to this. 

On behalf of the SGA, I 
would like to express my appre- 
ciation to you for your hard work 
in getting out the first issue of 
the Current Sauce. I would also 
like to encourage other students 
to express their opinion concern- 
ing the various matters on the 
campus and offer my services 
both to you and the students of 
Northwestern State College. 

Yours looking for a better NSC, 

Henry L. Burns 
Student Body President

As defined by Websters, 
a corporation is a body of 
persons associated for some 
purpose. Hunk Anderson, Bill

were known as THE COR-

of Hobart College in New 
York. These men were defi- 
nately associated for some 
purpose. This purpose was

College To Serve 
As Testing Center 

Northwestern State College 
has designated as a test center 
for administering the National 
Teacher Examinations Nov. 9, 
according to Dr. Tandy W. McEl- 
wee, director of the counseling 
and testing center. 

College seniors preparing to 
teach and teachers applying for 
positions in school systems which 
encourage or require applicants 
to submit their scores on the 
National Teachers Examinations 
along with their other credent- 
ials are eligible to take the tests. 

McElwee said the designation 
of Northwestern as a test cen- 
ter will give prospective teachers 
in the area an opportunity to 
compare their performance on 
the examinations with candidates 
throughout the country who take 
the tests. 

During the one-day testing ses- 
sion, candidates may take the 
Common Examinations, which 
includes tests in Professional 
Education and General Educa- 
tion, and one of the 13 Teaching 
Area Examinations which are 
designed to evaluate their under- 
standing of subject matter in 
various areas. 

Registration forms and infor- 
mation bulletins may be obtained 
by writing Dr. Tandy W. McEl- 
wee, Counseling and Testing

campus dining facilities which 
had been closed due to student 
dissatisfaction with the food. The 
administration was aware of the 
spunky trio's reputation but 
merely laughed off their offer 
at first. Later when they were 
at wits end trying to figure a 
way to re-open their cafeteria, 
they decided to let the Corpora- 
tion try its hand at managing the 
dining hall. These three students 
were a phenominal success. 
From this success has grown 
the highly successful catering 
empire known as Saga. 

Saga is the company that has 
contracted the monumental task 
of catering food on campus this 
year. This company has a list of 
references that would impress 
anyone; even your mother. One 
fact that hits your mind in an 
impressive way is that in 20 
years of business Saga has lost 
only one contract due to custo- 
mer dissatisfaction. Another in- 
teresting note is that Saga was 
the first commercial school cater- 
ing service to offer multiple se- 
lections of food and seconds on 
servings. These services have 
since been used by other or- 
ganizations but Saga is still the 
leader of all other catering ser- 

The Saga company is represent- 
ed on campus by a capable trio 
in the form of Dale Stone, Food 
Services Director, and dining 
hall managers Mike Fitzpatrick 
and Dave Martin. Stone is a for- 
mer student of NSC who has 
been associated with the food 
service industry for 14 years 
and Saga for the last four. Fitz- 
patrick and Martin are both rela- 
tive newcomers to Saga but both 
are very capable administrators 
with Fitzpatrick sporting a de- 
gree in Economics which he 
earned at Notre Dame. 

Northwestern is merely one 
of well over 300 campuses 
served by Saga, and the students 
here are enjoying the lowest 
rates of all the other Saga clients. 
These rates are experimental but 
so far seem to be working. In 
dollars and cents this means that 
the price of meal tickets will re- 
main the same. 

In keeping with company 
policy, the students will enjoy 
special events monthly, sponsored 
by the Saga people. The first in 
the series will be a Discotheque 
party in the latter part of this 
month. Other events are being 
planned but the exact nature 
has not been decided upon.

Record Number 

Enroll For Fall 

Northwestern State College 
President Arnold Kilpatrick has 
announced that fall semester en- 
rollment at NSC reached an all- 
time record of 6,555. 

The fall registration total is an 
increase of 224 students over the 
enrollment during the fall sem- 
ester of 1967. Kilpatrick said the 
registration figures include 
more full-time students than at 
any time in the 84-year history 
of the college. 

All of the college's five under- 
graduate schools recorded enroll- 
ments of more than 900 students, 
with the exception of the School 
of Nursing. The breakdown by 
schools shows 2,013 in the School 
of Education; 995 in Science and 
Technology; 983 in Business; 931 
in Liberal Arts and 340 in Nurs-

Of Students 

Northwestern's Graduate 
School enrollment this fall is 
1,293. Kilpatrick said the effect 
of the draft on graduate enroll- 
ment at Northwestern was not as 
severe as anticipated. Northwest- 
ern's Graduate School is the lar- 
gest of any college or university 
under the State Board of Educa- 

This year's freshman class of 
2,000 students is the largest num- 
ber of first-year students ever re- 
corded at Northwestern. Another 
breakdown of the figures shows 
an enrollment of 3,502 men and 
3,053 women. 

The increase in enrollment this 
fall has been felt throughout the 
campus. C.L. Starnes, director of 
housing, reported that some old 
dormitories, which had been clos- 
ed for the past two years, had to 
be reopened in order to accom- 
modate the largest number of 
students living on campus. 

There are 3,502 students hous- 
ed on campus this semester, 
which is an increase of some 150 
over last year and is the largest 
number of students ever housed 
on the Northwestern campus. 

Living in dormitories this fall 
are 1,660 women and 1,842 men. 
This compares with 1,574 women 
and 1,794 men last year. 

Some 9,750 meais a day are 
being served to students in the 
college's two i dining Kaqiljities. 
The 3,250 students holding cam- 
pus meal tickets is an increase 
of more than 200 over last fall. 

Campus Security reports that 
2,500 student cars are registered 
on the campus. Last fall there 
were 2,000 student cars register- 
ed at the college. 

The college bookstore has sold 
35,000 books since registration as 
compared to some 31,000 last fall. 
The sale of ciass supplies in the 
bookstore is up about 30 per cent.

Vietnam s Anti-War Students 
Having A Tough Time Of It 

SDS Leaders In November 1 Deadline For Applying 
Campus Disorders For Danforth Graduate Fellowships 

(CPS) — Vietnam's anti-war 
student activists have grown in- 
creasingly militant this year de- 
spite the heavier price of openly 
opposing the government. If they 
wish to speak out strongly against 
the war, studnts face the choice of 
risking a long prison term or 
joining the National Liberation 
Front or its allies. 

Some of the student leaders 
have already chosen the latter 
alternative. Several leaders of the 
Saigon Student Union in 1967 
joined the NLF during Tet. 
Several of Hue's student activists, 
traditionally more militant, join- 
ed the Front before the end of 
last year. 

It is difficult to get accurate 
information on how many stu- 
dents are actually working for the 
clandestine Alliance of National, 
Democratic and Peace Forces or 
its student affiliate, the Saigon 
Students Committee for Peace, 
both of which have aligned them- 
selves with the Front as an alter- 
nate to the Thieu government. 
One political figure well-known 
for his anti-war stand believes 
that the figure is probably no 
more than 100. Student leaders 
themselves admit that only about 
ten percent of the approximately 
25,000 university students in 
Saigon even know or care about 
the Alliance and its purpose. 

Anti-war activists, however, 
have clearly been driven to a 
position of advocating the over- 
throw of the military government 
by a Communist-led coalition of 
forces. One student leader inter- 
viewed at the Student Union 
headquarters, still filled with 
refugees from the May offensive, 
said, "The future role of the 
generals who rule the country 
depends on how they respond to 
the people's wishes for peace. 
If they do not give the people 
peace, they will be lost." 

Militance was also reflected in 
his position on the future reun- 
ification will take place within 
five years, at the most. Most 
people believe that all Vietnam- 
ese are one, North and South. 

The activists are not typical 
Saigon students. It is usually es- 
timated that only about 10 per- 
cent of he university students 
are politically active. Most of 
them have little respect for 
either the Saigon politicians or 
the generals, and they have been 
perfectly willing to let someone 
else die if they can avoid military 
service. But since nearly all of 
them are from middle-class fam- 
ilies, most students also find a 
victory by the Viet Cong unac- 

They are also quite insensitive 
to the social cleavages and con- 
flicts which underlie the present 
war. When beginning students at 
Saigon University were asked by 
an American teacher of English 
to write a composition on the 
racial problem in the U.S., com- 
paring it with Vietnamese social 
problems, very few mentioned 
the gulf between the urban mid- 
dle class and the peasant, be- 
tween Vietnamese and Chinese, 
or between Vietnamese and Mon- 
tagnard tribesmen. 

The anti-war movement is 
limited by the inherent social 

class composition of the studnt 
body. Little interest is generated 
by the elections for positions in 
the Saigon Student Union, the 
organization representing stu- 
dents of the 14 divisions of Sai- 
gon University. But the left-wing 
opponents of the war seem to 
be in a majority among those 
who are more involved in politics. 

Anti-war students have been 
elected to the executive commit- 
tees of the various faculties of the 
university over the last two years, 
and since these representatives in 
turn elect the powerful stven- 
man executive committee of the 
Saigon Student Union, the anti- 
war movement has dominated it 
during that time. 

The Student Union has been 
involved in social action as well 
as politices, having mobilized 
about 500 university students to 
contribute labor regularly in ref- 
ugee relief after Tet Offensive 
and the May offensive. At one 
refugee center this summer, I 
saw students teaching refugee 
children in a school which they 
had begun on their own. 

Anti-war activity has run in 
cycles, depending on the polit- 
ical circumstances of the mo- 
ment. Last year, students were 
moblized by the results of the 
Presidential Election, which were 
denounced by Buddhists and 
student leaders as fraudulent, 
coupled with calls for a negoti- 
ated settlement of the war. 

Late last September, members 
of the excutive committees of 
the four universities at Saigon, 
Can Tho, Da Lat and Van Hanh 
organized a seminar and demon- 
stration, then issued a statement 
demanding the cessation of the 
bombing of North Vietnam, a 
ceasefire, the withdrawal of 
forgein troops and negotiations 
to reunify the country. Within 
the same week, students demon- 
strated in front of the National 
Assembly and tore up the board 
displaying the names of those 
elected in Presidential and 
Senatorial elections. 

As a result of these and other 
demonstrations, the chairman of 
the Executive Committee of the 
Saigon Student Union, Ho Huu 
Nhut, and six other student lead- 
ers were arrested and spent some 
time in jail before they were 
drafted into the army. At the 
beginning of the Tet Offensive, 
all seven joined the Viet Cong. 

A new cycle of student anti- 
war activity began early last sum- 
mer, not with demonstrations 
but with public statements. After 
a long silence on the war, the 
official newspaper of the Student 
Union, with a circulation of about 
5,000 published an editorial both 
strongly anti-war and anti-Ameri- 
can. At the same time, the Student 
Union's Executive Committee is- 
sued a statemnet urging that the 
war "must cease by negotiation 
in order for the nation not to be 
destroyed." It called for a "real- 
istic peace solution" acceptable 
to both parties. Within a month, 
the editor of the student news- 
paper was arrested and later sen- 
tenced to five years at hard labor.

While the organization known 
as Students for a Democratic 
Society represents only a minus- 
cule minority of students, it has 
managed to play a leading role 
in the violence, bloodshed and 
arson that have exploded across 
college campuses from Colum- 
bia to Stanford. 

Details of how this small but 
militant group has managed to 
disrupt college life are revealed 
in the October Reader's Digest 
by Eugene Methvin of the maga- 
zine's Washington bureau. Quo- 
ting SDS officials and members, 
he reports that the organization's 
ultimate goal "is nothing less 
that the destruction of society 

Methvin quotes one speaker at 
SDS' national convention at East 
Lansing, Mich., last June: "The 
ability to manipulate people 
through violenc and mass media 
has never been greater, the po- 
tential for us as radicals never 
more exciting, than now." FBI 
director J. Edgar Hoover has 
said: "They are a new type of 
subersive, and their danger is 

SDS's tactics include use of off- 
campus issues to duisrpt campus 
life, the article points out. An 
SDS member from Wisconsin put 
it this way: "We organized dor- 
mitory students around rules, and 
then it was easy to move them 
on issues as the university's re- 
lation to Chase Manhattan Bank." 

The article quotes these among 
specific SDS proposals for dis- 
ruption of society; picking public 
fights with welfare workers; 
starting trash-can fires and pul- 
ling fire alarms in high schools 
as "forms of protest"; making 
appointments by the score with 
university deans and registrars- 
to "overuse the bureaucracy"; 
checking out an inordinate num- 
ber of books to disrupt libraries 
and study programs; disrupting 
draft boards by registering under 
a false name so "federal agents 
will spend much time attempting 
to track down people who do not 

While it purports to follow a 
line of "independent radicalism", 
Methvin reports SDS betrays 
growing signs of links to hard- 
core professional communists. 
Known communists have sat in 
on SDS meetings and coached 
organizers since the organization 
was founded in 1962; SDS leaders 
frequently travel to Red capitals; 
two of three national officers 
chosen at last June's national 
convention were self-proclaimed 

While many SDSers are actively 
anti-Kremlin, they share with the 
communists a common desire to 
destroy, to annihilate and to tear 
down, the article asserts. 

Citing SDS's role in the recent 
upheaval at Columbia University 
Methvin declares that firmer ac- 
tion by school authorities in sup- 
port of the anti-radical "Majority

Inquiries about the Danfort 
Graduate Fellowships, to be a- 
warded in March, 1969, are in- 
vited according to Dr. George 
A. Stokes, Dean of the School 
of Liberal Arts, the local cam- 
pus representative. 

The Fellowships, offered by 
the Danforth Foundation of St. 
Louis, Missouri, are open to 
men and women who are seniors 
or recent graduates of accredited 
colleges in the United States, 
who have serious interest in col- 
lege taching as a career, and who 
plan to study ffor a Ph.D. in a 
field common to the undergrad- 
uate college. Applicants may be 
single or married, must be less 
than thiry years off age at the 
time of application, and may 
not have undertaken any gradu- 
ate or professional study beyond 
the baccalaureate. 

Approximately 120 Fellow- 
ships will be awarded in March, 
1969. Candidates must be nomi- 
nated by Liaison Officers of 
their undergraduate institutions 
by November 1, 1968. The Found- 
Coalition" would avert escalating 
violence that culminated in can- 
cellation of classes at Columbia. 

While acknowledging that le- 
gitimate grievances by students 
must receive "far more attention" 
from officials than heretofore, 
Methvin says that prompt action 
by students and administrators is 
a must to prevent campus-wide 
clashes in the future. 

Sidney Hook, noted New York 
University philosophy professor, 
has said that SDS members 
"threaten to become the true 
grave diggers of academic free- 
dom in the United States". Only 
prompt action by school author- 
ities and the overwhelming ma- 
jority of students can prevent the 
grave from being dug. 

ation does not accept direct ap- 
plications for the Fellowships. 

Danforth Graduate Fellows are 
eligible for four years of finan- 
cial assistance, with a maximum 
annual living stipend of $2400 
for single Fellows and $2950 for 
married fellows, plus tuition and 
fees. Dependtncy allowances are 
available. Financial need is not 
a condition for consideration. 

Danforth Fellows may hold 
other fellowships such as Ford, 
Fulbright, National Science, 
Rhodes, Woodrow Wilson, etc. 
concurrently, and will be Dan- 
iforth Fellows without stipend 
until the other awards lapse. 

The Danforth Foundation was 
created in 1927 by the late Mr. 
and Mrs. William H. Danforth 
of St. Louis as a philanthropy 
devoted to giving aid and en- 
couragement to persons, to em- 
phazizing the humane values 
that come from a religious and 
democratic heritage, and to 
strenghtening the essential quol- 
ity of education. The Foundation 
seeks to serve these purposes 
through activity in education and 
urban affairs. In education, par- 
ticular emphasis is placed upon 
secondary and higher education 
in the United States and espec- 
ially on the liberal arts and sci- 
ences. In urban affairs, priority 
is given to the support of efforts, 
largely in the St. Louis area, 
in the fields of employment, ed- 
ucation and housing. 

The Foundation is both an op- 
erating and grant-making agency; 
that is, it makes grants to schools, 
colleges, universities and other 
public and private agencies, and 
also administers programs de- 
signed to reflect its central em-

1968 SORORITY OFFICERS— Sororities on campus recented elected 
officers for the fall semester. Officers for the semester are, left to 
right: first row, Linda Cunningham, Mary Vacca, Phi Mu; second 
row, Susan Brumfield, Connie Conine, Pattye Robinson, Delta Zeta; 
third row, Becky Smith, Connie Jones,, Sigma Kappa and Nancy 
Hartz and Robin Creighton of Alpha Sigma Alpha. 

Anti-war — 

(Continued from page 4) 

The main reason for the timing 
of these statements was the im- 
pending general mobilization 
under which most students would 
lose their draft deferments. Stu- 
dents called on members of both 
houses of the National Assembly 
to protest the mobilization and to 
demand how long they would 
permit the war to go on. They al- 
so consulted political figures like 
Tran Van Tuyen and Au Truong 
Thanh, who had spoken out for 
a negotiated settlement based on 
the participation of the Viet Cong 
in elections. But the effort to de- 
flect the mobilization law failed. 

Prospects for the student anti- 
war movement in Vietnam are 
worse than they have been since 
the fall of Diem. Prevented from 
demonstrating, severely limited 
in what they can publish, and 
continually harrassed by police, 
who frequently enter their of- 
fices to search for subversive 
materials, the activists still re- 
maining in Saigon are frustrated 
but determined. Asked what they 
could do to influence the govern- 
ment's policy, one student lead- 
er replied firmly, "We can only 
demand peace, again and again."

Greeks Busy With Pledge 

Much activity and excitement 
filled the first three weeks of 
school for the Greeks. Both so- 
rorities and fraternities rushed, 
pledged, and chose pledge class 
officers. .In order to give the 
needed attention to each Greek 
group, this section of the paper 
this week will be dedicated to 
only the sororities. Fraternities 
will head the bill next week. 

Eighty-nine Northwestern State 
College coeds were issued bids 
by the college's five social soror- 
ities. Quota was set at 24 for 
each group. 

The 89 students who accepted 
bids will be listed as pledges for 
one semester before reaching 
active status. 

First night parties were held 
on Monday September 16. Those 
having sorority houses held then- 
parties there. Phi Mu used Sig- 
ma Tau House for their Monday 
night party, and Kappa Alpha 
House for their Wednesday night 
theme party. 

The first parties consisted of 
skits and talks by the officers. 
Refreshments were served only

attended. There were five parties 
for each sorority and each lasted 
20 minutes. 

Wednesday night functions 
were theme parties. Each soror- 
ity chose their own ideas, decorat- 
ed and dressed accordingly, and 
gave favors to symbolize their 
theme. The gala activities were 
varied from house to house. 
From Sigma Kappa's Western 
Party to Tri Sigma's "Roaring 

Second night parties lasted 40 
minutes — four given by each 

Friday night, each group held 
their preferential tea. Sigma 
Kappa and Phi Mu Sororities 
held their last night rush party 
in the Student Union. Other 
sororities used their own houses. 

Rushees picked up their bids 
Sunday morning and reported to 
their chosen sorority at 9 a.m. 
Activities and pledges accom- 
panied the new members to 
church and most of the pledg- 
ings followed Sunday afternoon. 

It is my hope, as Greek Editor, 
that each sorority may encourage 
its members — new and old — to 
take advantage of their capacity 
as a Greek and do all they can 
to serve Northwestern. Congratu- 
lations to all the sororities for 
a very successful fall rush. 

Open rush is now taking place. 
All sororities who did not make 
quota may pledge girls until they 
fill all vacancies. Any girl who 
would be interested in pledging 
this semester may see Dean 
Hendricks or talk to a girl of 
the sorority they wish to join.

Many after hearing the whole 
concert stated that something 
just seemed to be missing. The 
leader of the group, Jim Estes 
conjurred saying that the way 
the coliseum was structured for

with the audience. 

"The sound kept bouncing back 
and forth and we could'nt get 
anything going between us" he 
said mournfully. 

The girls which traveled with 
the group however had a quite 
different opinion and ecstatically 
exclaimed, "You really socked it 
to 'em tonight." 

Most students seemed to dis- 
miss the matter with a simple

Estes, after the concert was 
completed, recalled the groups

Demons Overpower Wildcats 
As Long Grid Series Ends 

Tony Papa (20) demonstrates determination that has made him one 
of the top rushers in the GSC. 

The Purple and White put to- 
gether its second straight high 
scoring win, routing hapless Lou- 
isiana College 39-14 at Demon 
Stadium Saturday. It was victory 
number 37 for the Demons against 
the Wildcats and the last as the 
long series came to a close. 

After early sloppy play by both 
teams the Demons engineered a 
16 play 95-yard drive which end- 
ed with Richard Ware plunging 
over from the one. Rusty James' 
kick for the AT was blocked. 

With seconds left in the first 
quarter LC took advantage of a 
Demon fumble and tossed a 16- 
yard pass for a touchdown. The 
PAT was good and the Wildcats 
led for one of the few times in 
recent years. 

In spite of 70 yards in penal- 
ties and two fumbles lost, the De- 
mons broke the game open in 
the second quarter. Vic Nyvall, 
who was used sparingly, swept 
left emd for a two-yard score that 

Cadet Corps Lists 
Staff of Officers 

Any organization is only as 
good as its leaders. This is espec- 
ially true of the Army. The 
Northwestern State College Corps 
of Cadets, plainning on another 
successful year, has the largest 
Senior class of its history. With 
the 45 cadet officers, the Corps 
had to be reorganized for the 
class of '69. The recent summer 
camp graduates, 25 of whom 
were nominated for Distinguish- 
ed Military Students, are in full 
command of the Volunteer Corps. 

The principle staff offices and 
officers are: Batallion Command- 
erer, Randall Jackson of Shreve- 
port; Batallion Chief of Staff, 
Cadet Lt. Col. Evertt Doubleday 
of Shreveport; Batallion Inspec- 
tor General and Black Knight, 
Commander, Cadet Lt. Col. Louis 
Duet of New Orleans. The staff 
includes Cadet Maj. John Hall, 
Natchitoches, as the S-l; Cadet 
Capt. Micheal Churchman, Nat- 
chitoches, as the S-2; Maj. Robert 
Smith, Shreveport, as the S-3; 
Cadet Capt. Fred Throgmorton, 
Bossier City, as the S-4 The Ba- 
tallion Training Officer is Cadet 
Capt. Michael Gaddis from Laf- 
ayette. The Drill Officer is Cadet 
Capt. Malcom Kirsop of Shreve- 

The biggest job of training the 
men belongs to the four Company 
Commanders. Headquarters C. O. 
is Cadet Capt. Larry Bumgard- 
ner of Lafayette; "A" Company 
CO. is Cadet Capt. Thomas 

McCullugh of Natchitoches; "B" 
Company Commander is Cetdet 
Capt. Bob Davis, Natchitoches; 
and "C" Company Commander is 
Cadet Capt. Larry Rivet, also of 

These are the men who will 
make sure Northwestern's cadets 
are on top again on campus and 
at summer camp as last year and 
in the past. This senior year is 
designed to test their leadership 
ability and command responsibil- 
ities which are important qualit- 
ies in an Army Officer.

Don Guidry hit Steve Gaspard 
for a 13- yard TD pass with 1:02 
left in the half. Seconds later 
Ken Hrapmann intercepted a pass 
and rambled 33 yards to put the 
ball on the Wildcat 16. Five plays 
and two penalties later, Guidry 
ccinnected with Wayne Haney 
from the three yard line and the 
Purple Devils took a 26-7 half- 
time advantage. 

The stingy defensive line of the 
Demons forced the Wildcats to a 
minus 13 yards rushing. 

Realizing that their only ef- 
fective means of offense was 
through the air, Louisiana Col- 
lege threw with some success at 
the Demon secondary. The Wild- 
cat air attack piled up 227 yards 
and two touchdowns. 

The team traded touchdowns in 
the third period. Guidry tossed 
a two-yard pass to Haney for a 
Demon touchdown and LC quar-

Jim Novembre for their score. 
The final quarter started with 
the Purple and White leading 32-

Nyvall Ready For Action 

Star halfback, Vic Nyval,, 
is expected to be in top shape 
when the Northeast State 
College Indians host the De- 
mons in Monroe tomorrow 
night. In a short interview 
earlier this week the Demon 
husler said he felt great and 
thought he would be ready 
for Northeast. 

Nyvall, even though wearing 
a shoulder harness, made a good 
showing for the short time that 
he helped fight the Wildcats Sa- 
turday night. The 185 pounder 
from Kilgore, Texas, gained 31 
yards in six attempts plus carried 
the pigskin from the Wildcat one 
yard line into the end zone for 
the Demon's second touchdown of 
the game. Vic also grabbed a pass 
by Don Guidry for a 17 yard gain 
and vital first down in the De- 
mon's first touchdown drive. 

Dixie White, head football 
coach and thletic director at 
Northeast State College, had this 
to say about the speedy back: 
"Vic Nyvall is one of the most 
dangerous backs in our confer- 
ence. He is a constant threat and 
because of his ability to make 
the big play and break away at 
any time, he has to be considered 
as one of the best this conference 
has ever produced." 

During the course of the inter- 
view, Vic gave this reporter the 
impression that he thought a 
great deal about the rest of the 
NSC squad. When asked if there 

were any particular linemen that 
he would rather follow during a 
play he replied, "No, they are 
all good." Nyvall also expressed 
that the three men with him in 
the backfield, Tony Papa, Rich- 
ard Ware, and Don Guidry, do 
a great job of complementing 
each other's skills.

Northeast Hosts Demons 
In Conference Opener 

The big and powerful Nohtheast 
State Indians host the Purple and 
White in the GSC liftoff for both 
teams tomorrow at Brown Stadi- 
um in Monroe. The Indians were 
favored as GSC champions in pre- 
season polls and as Coach Glenn 
Gossett expresed, "They have the 
people to do it with." 

The Indians are 1-1 on the 
young season, having bowed to 
third ranked University of Texas 
at Arlington and taking an easy 
win over Stephen F. Austin last 
week. Northeast held to no yards 
rushing but was vulnerable to the 
air attack. 

The Monroe eleven uses a basic 
winged T offence with a split 
end. They rely on the ground 
attack of halfback Joe Profit and 
Ron Gaetano. Quarterbacks Steve 
Mansur and Terry Reisig are both 
runners and they have all GSC- 
end Al Miller to throw to. The 
plqwerful backfield runs power 
sweeps and quick traps which 
are made effective by a large 
offensive line. 

Northeast has mo injury pro- 
blems and they have very good 
depth. The squad has 30 letter- 

men and nine starters from a 
team that composed a 7-3 mark 
last year and 3-2 slate in GSC 
action. The Demons are hobbled 
by injuries to back-up men Gil 
Gilson and Mike Pool. Neither 
are expected to see much action, 
if any in tomorrow might's game. 

The Tribe is expected to stick 
with their policy of grinding out 
ground yardage. They should 
play ball control but may have to 
take to the air due to the effec- 
tiveness of the Demon defence 
against rushing. 

The effective Indian defence 
runs from a standard 5-2 Okla- 
homa. They will stunt occasionally 
but rarely blitz, due to a hard 
charging line. The secondary 
usually sets up in azone 

Gossett expreseed the view that 
his squad would stick with what 
they do best as far as a game plan 
is concerned. This would seem to 
indicate a balanced attack with 
quarterback Don Guidry on the 
pss run option. The end corps of 
Ai Phillips, SteveGaspaxd; and 
Wayne Haney has caught 19 

passes thus far and is expected 
to see a lot of actoin. The light, 
speedy backield will also be call- 
ed on generously. 

The game tomorrow night will 
be the 17th in a serious which 
has produced 14 wins for the 
Demons and two for the Indians. 
Last year the Demons rolled over 
their opponent 21-14 for a very 
important victory as far as Gulf 
States Conference in concerned. 
Tomorrow night's game is ex- 
pected to be a great deal tougher 
and by far one of the conference-s 
most important games to be 
played this year. 

A win over the Indians could 
spark the Demons to a GSC crown 
as Northeast will be one of the 
Devils. Gossett and his staff have 
worked hard with the team in 
preparation for the GSC opener 
which should be a thriller. 

this week to resume his normal 
school activities. 

The training at the Air Force 
Academy now is to familiarize 
the athletes with the high altitude 
which exist in Mexico City. The 
team is scheduled to leave for the 
games on October 4. 

Also accompaning the U.S. 
Gymnastics Team will be Arman- 
do Vega, who will serve as 
assistant coach and judge. The 
one time Olympic star is now on 
the NSC staff as head gymnastics 
coach. After having observed 
Loyd for quite a while now, Vega 
had this to say abou the outstand- 
ing athlete: "He is a great athlete, 
yet humble. This is a fine trait to 
have in life in general, to be good 
in something, yet be down to 
earth. He is easy to coach because 
he does exactly as he is told." 

Recently at the final trails in 
Colorado, Loyd came out first 
amoung the top eight. 

Intramural Scoop 

There are 18 teams battling it 
out for top honors in intramural 
football on campus this year. The 
teams now in their second week 
of action will play 10 games each 
in n effort to determine the top 
gridders. The play has been hard 
and fast. After the initial games 
have been played there will be 
a tournament to decide the over- 
all winner. 

All intramural activities are 
under the supervision of Coach 
Gentry. The oficials used for the 
events are supplied by Gentry's 
204 Physical Education class. 

According to Gentry this year's 
events will be better than ever. 

Intramural sports is a big thing 
on campus and all the students 
are urged to go out and yell 
for their favorite team. 


Registration deadline for in- 
tramural badminton is October 
8. Sign up at intramural office.

Urban Set Production 
Shows Much Artistry 

by George Spence 

The NSC Speech Department's 
fall production of Herb Gardner's 
"A Thousand Clowns" officially 
opened the 1968-69 theatre sea- 

The play, under the direction 
of Mr. Ray Schexnider, wias a 
comedy concerning the life of 
a young boy. The boy, Nick 
Burns, lives with his Uncle Mur- 
ray in a Manhattan apartment. 
The problem is how Murray, an 
irresponsible cynic, learns how to 
conform and accept contemporary 
urban life in order that Nick may 
continue to live with him. 

Outstanding in his role as Nick, 
Bill Strattan, a sophomore trans- 
fer from McNeese, was both ex- 
citing and believable. Some may 
remember Strattan from the sum- 
mer production of "Stop the 
World, I Want to Get Off." His 
child-like enthusiasm and almost 
unbelievable energy were more 
than convincing as the 13 year- 
old Nick. 

Stephan Kimsey in his role as 
Murray was somewhat less con- 
vincing. In spite of the well writ- 
ten lines he sounds at 
times as if he were reciting mere 
memorized series of lines without 
the real-life features of Murray. 

Albert Admudson more than 
adeuately portorayed by Bob 
York, was the hard-nosed, cold, 
and scientific social worker. York 
has had previous experience in 
the theatre at NSC with his role 
of the treasurer in Marc Petta- 
way's "Cinderella" this past sum- 
mer. A faculty member, York 
was as convincing as Albert as he 
is in the classroom. 

The role of Sandra Markowitz, 
Admunson's colleague, was play- 
ed by Linda Newman, a senior 
Speech major and Davis Player 
member from Alexandria. Miss 

Newman's sensitivity was reveal- 
ed on the stage as she portrayed 
the (soft-hearted social worker. 
The emotional changes and fluct- 
uations of Miss Markowitz made 
the audience quite aware of the 
actor's capabilities. 

Donald Wilkes was was featur- 
ed in the role of Arnold Burns. 
Arnold, the brother of Murray 
Burns, was a dull uninteresting 
businessman and the complete 
opposite of Murray. Wilks handl- 
ed this part adequately enough 
from the technical standpoint 
without ever adding any real life 
to the character. 

Chippie the Chipmunk, Leo 
Herman, is brought to life by Gor- 
don Parker. Parker's brief ap- 
pearance was a welcome breather 
to the sometimes dull perfor- 
mance. Frustrated and' middle- 
aged, Leo Herman reveals the 
disillusionment of a man too 
deeply involved with the dollar 

The scenery was most effec- 
tive in resemblance to a large 
city apartment, in fact, cne would 
almost imagine he was actually 
there. The Playboy cluttered a- 
partment in contrast to the stud- 
ied neatness of Miss Markowitz 
adds an interesting insight into 
the problems of slum clearance. 

The lighting crew, headed by 
Pam Clark, provided lighting re- 
sembling that of the older apart- 
ments. The shades and tones con- 
tributed quality to the atmos- 
phere of both the apartment and 
the business office of Arnold 

While "A Thousand Clowns," 
had its ups and downs, for the 
mast part it was an interesting 
production. The high points are 
enough to encourage the "doubt- 
ers" to venture into the Little

any of the dormitories on campus. 

Following the game, parents 
are invited to an all-college dance 
at Prather Coliseum which will 
climax the annual Moms and Dads 
Day event. 

Among the organizations spon- 
soring the event is the organi- 
zation of the Associated Women's 
Students. Headed by Edith De- 
witt, this organization will be 
largely responsible for the deco- 
rations in the women's Dorms. 

These activities have been plan- 
ned throughout the day in expec- 
tation of hundreds of visiting par- 
ents. Refreshments will be served 
in the dormitories to parents, 
courtesy of the Associated Men's 
Students group. 

It is the expressed hope of the 
college administration the Moms 
and Dads Day will help bridge 
the gap between parents and 
teachers, parents and the college 
administration, and parents and

One of the prerogatives of a school newspaper is to 
seek communication with the student body in new and 
sometimes unorthodox ways in the hope that one of these 
attempts will meet the demands of the situation. 

The Sauce staff feels that one of the fundamental 
needs of this student body is a vehicle to express opinion 
about campus and national problems and to learn more 
concerning the inside operation of this college as well as 
the operation of our state and federal governments. 

The answers to these demands, we feel, is a student 
forum; one that would enable students themselves to bring 
to light their questions and gripes concerning the college 
administration, the Student Government Association, nation- 
al and state government as well as queries concerning any 
other area of student experience. 

As for the material for this column, which will be called 
loggerheads, the students will furnish it themselves. How- 
ever, all suggested topics must be mailed or delivered to 
the Current Sauce office (which is in the Old Student Union, 
now the Art Center) and signed by a Northwestern State 
College student. The topics will be researched and written 
up by the editorial staff of the Current Sauce with the em- 
phasis given to coverage of the pros as well as the cons of 
every situation. 

It is our hope that the opinions of the student body at 
large will be brought out of the bull session, the uncom- 
municative mind, and political back doors, and be brought 
to the attention of the whole student body. 

The editorial staff of the Sauce will reserve the rights 
to determine the suitability of any topic which is submitted 
for discussion. 

The responsibility now lays on the shoulders of the 
student body to care enough about this college and nation 
to support an informative column of this nature. Every 
student should take this column and even the whole news- 
paper as his own personal responsibility as he seeks a bet- 
ter college experience for himself and his fellow students. 


And Prunes 

By Jeremiah Kripp 

In this column, this paper will attempt to set the world 
straight on just about every issue under the sun. 

I'll be talking about stiff ramifications, psychedelic 
stuff, and more of the junk that composes avery day life on 
this campus. 

My first topic of discussion is blondes, brunettes, and 
redheads. In other words, people, and particularly as they 
interact with each other in the time honored custom called 

Under examination, (and incidentally national attention) 
at this time, is the typical date on this campus. First of all, 
this date never takes place unless both parties have at least 
a 2.0 grade average and have caught up in all of their stud- 
ies for the following day. 

This makes the whole mess sort of difficult since it 
is hard to get a date ahead of time on this basis. 

Another major factor in the date is politeness. Keen 
observers have investigated, snooped, and used every imag- 
inable scientific method to find just one boy who failed to 
open a car door for a girl . . . and all to no avail. 

Another appealing factor in the on-campus date is the 
honesty shown by all the parties which are involved. While 
some colleges and universities are noted for the lines that 
their young men are able to peel off, NSC men are noted 
for the frank approach. 

Detectives, using all the latest devices for bugging 
purposes, have tried in vain to discover at least one boy who 
tried to make a girl do something that she didn't want to 
do. The investigators were amazed at the negative results. 

Still dizzy with the knowledge that each boy at this 
college was always and at all times the ideal date, the in- 
spectors left to examine yet another college. 

We are very glad that we and we alone can make 
the claim that the men on this campus are not only generous, 
but considerate, not only kind, but honest. It is the sincere 
wish of the Sauce editorial staff that the girls at North- 
western would appreciate the wonderful boys who are at 
their disposal.

Student Union Offers 
Variety of Activities 

In the three years since it was 
built, the Student Union, has be- 
come the center of Campus act- 
ivitys, and most students are well 
aware of the variety of entertain- 
ment facilities available to them. 

Bob Wilson, Director of the 
Student Union, has called it "the 
living room of the campus." Wil- 
son stresses that the SU is for 
the students and that they play 
a large part in planning activit- 
ies. Student committees work 
along with Wilson and Student 
Union Program Director Tommy 
Chester in every phase of SU act- 

These committees, composed 
of about 50 student volunteers, 
include Entertainment, Music 
and Films, Hospitality, Fine 
Arts, Decorations, and Public 

Among th most important fac- 
ilities of the SU are the Post 

Welch Heads NSC

as well as the national conven- 
tion in Detroit, Michigan. 

These new officers were in- 
stalled during a barbecue at 
the home of Pearl Domma, NSC 

Office and Bookstore. In the Post 
Office, mail boxes are available 
for the students. Mail comes into 
the Post Office daily and is sent 
out every day but Suday. In the 
Book Store are available not on- 
ly textbooks, but also many other 
supplies necessary to college 

Such services as a barber and 
beauty shop and a poster print 
shop are especially handy to 
busy students. An information of- 
fice, a lost and found depart- 
ment, and informative bulletin 
boards are designed to make use 
of the SU easier. 

For pure fun, students can 
make use of eight-lane bowling 
alley and a spacious billard 
room. A color television has been 
recently installed in Room 235 
and studnts can watch it any 
time the SU is open. Across the 
hall from th T.V. room is the 
music listening room. Modern 
stereo units are operated from 
an up-to-date control room by 
students operators. Students can 
bring their own records or make 
requests from the supply of cur- 
rently popular recordings pur- 
chased periodically by the SU. 

A brousing room, which fea- 
tures current copies of 40 popu- 
lar magazines, is available for 
a few minutes of quite relaxa- 
tion. Students who prefer a nois- 
ier type of relaxation can join 
the crowds that frequent the 
large cafeteria, where one can 
buy anything from a coke to a 
steak dinner. 

Campus and town organiza- 
tions have available to them the 
numrous conference and class- 
rooms for meetings and ban- 
quets, with food catered by the 

The large ballroom is the 
scene of campus dances, private 
Greek balls, SU movies, and 
many other activities. Reserva- 
tions for the ballroom are made 
through the Student Union Di- 
rector's office and almost every 
student on campus will find oc- 
cassion frequently to attend act- 
ivities in the ballroom.

Tickets Now Paid 
At Security Office 

Headquarters for paying traf- 
fic violations tickets have been 
changed from the cashier's of- 
fice in the Administration 
Building to the campus security 

This move centers all action in 
the campus security office it- 
self. Much confusion has been 
avoided since the new system 
was put into effect this fall. 

A new filing system for tic- 
ket payment was added last sum- 
mer. The new system has proved 
to be more accurate and time- 
saving, according to the office 

In about a month the campus 
security officers will be trading 
their old uniforms for new one. 
The incoming suits will be of 
year-round material. Formerly 
the men were issued one style 
of uniform for summer and a 
warmer version for winter wear. 

Debate Team 

Northwestern State College's 
debate team will participate in 
eight tournaments this year in 
four states, according to Dr. Ed- 
na West, head of the Department 
of Speech and Journalism. 

Ray Schexnider, a member of 
the speech department faculty 
and debate coach, said North- 
western debaters have already 
begun researching, holding dis- 
cussions and formulating briefs 
for their first competition Oct. 
31 through Nov. 2 at Texas 
Christian University. 

The debate topic for this year 
is "Resolved: That the Execu- 
tive Control of the Foreign Pol- 
icy of the United States should 
be Significantly Curtailed." 

More than 30 students are try- 
ing out of the, dbate squad, 
which will consist of 20 members.

Only Bic would dare to torment a beauty like this. Not the girl... 
the pen she's holding. It's the new luxury model Bic Clic... designed 
for scholarship athletes, lucky card players and other rich campus 
socialites who can afford the expensive 49-cent price. 

But don't let those delicate good looks fool you. Despite hor- 
rible punishment by mad scientists, the elegant Bic Clic still wrote 
first time, every time. 

Everything you want in a fine pen, you'll find in the new Bic 
Clic. It's retractable. Refillable. Comes in 8 barrel colors. And like 
all Bic pens, writes first time, every time... no matter what devilish 
abuse sadistic students devise for it.

Demons Edge Northeast 
7-3 In Defensive Battle 

by Lynn Rollins 

"That guy is all over the field!" 
"Where did he come from?" 
"That big tackle can really 

These are only a few of the 
comments that I heard as I ob- 
served the game from the crowd- 
ed Northeast pressbox last Sat- 
urday night. The comments were 
made with respect to the great 
effort that the Demon defense 
made against the Indians in a 7- 
3 defensive win for the Purple 
and White. 

All the scoring was done in the 
first half. Northeast drew first 
blood when Clarke Blake capped 
a 53-yard drive with a 28-yard 
field goal. The score came with 
9:02 remaining in the first quart- 

After an exchange of punts in 
the second quarted, the Demon 
offense managed its only sustain- 
ed drive. The 81-yard march was 
highlighted by the tough running 
of Tony Papa and Richard Ware. 
The offensive line moved out the 
big Indian defense in this series 
but they had little success other 
than this touchdown drive. The 
big play came on a fourth and 
four situation at the Northeast 
19. From his holding position on 
a field goal attempt, Don Guidry 
threw a 13-yard first down pass 
to Tom Hagin. One play later 
Guidry scrambled out of a pocket 
and scored. Rusty James convert- 
ed to finish the scoring. 

Defensive tackle Walter Edler 
and middle guard Wayne Estay 
both played aggresive and spec- 
acular games for the Demons. 

GSC Scoreboard 

Elder continually put pressure 
on the Indian quarterbacks and 
was all over the field. Estay plug- 
ged up the middle against the 
onslaught of Joe Profit. Profit 
went wide several times and 
gained a total of 102 yards but 
like the whole Indian offense, 
he was stopped in the clutch. The 
Demon secondary looked much 
improved but much credit should 
be given to the aggressive defen- 
sive line. 

The defense may have come 
of age in the last 1:39 when it 
stood off a desperate effort by 
Northeast. After a straight up 
punt which only went three 
yards, the Indians had excellent 
field position on the Demon 39 
yard line. Knowing that North- 
east had to pass but still keep- 
ing an eye on Profit, the line 
blew through all gaps and smoth- 
ered three pass attempts and a 
double reverse.

Howard, Promising Frosh 

Melvin Howard is among the 
25 freshman on the Demon rost- 
er. The split end from New Or- 
leans on a full scholarship, turn- 
ed down approximately 15 offers 
from other major colleges in the 
country. Among these schools 
were the University of Houston, 
Hampton Institute, Eastern Mich- 
igan, University, University of 
of Tulsa, and Northern Arizona. 

Howard played three years of 
high school football along with 
some basketball and track. He 
has an older brother who plays 
basketball for Southern Univers- 
ity in New Orleans. 

The 5'10", 175 pound reciever 
was clocked at 9.8 in the 100- 
yard dash when he was a soph- 
omore in high school, but accord- 
ing to Howard he has improved 
that time by at least two-tenths 
of a second. That would make 
him just about the fastest De- 
mon on the field. The speedster 
has said that he would like to 
run track in the Spring but has 
not yet really committed himself 
completely to the possibility. 

Melvin, being the only Negro 
on the Demon squad, was asked 
if there had been any problems. 
His answer was, "None, I was 
accepted immediately." 

Howards' primary duties now 
consist of being a good backup 
man and running in plays for 
Coach Gossett. Gossett has high 
hopes for Howard in the future. 
Howard would like to run back 
kickoffs and he thinks he could 
break a few. 

Asked about the GSC this year, 
Howard beamed,"I know we are 
going to win it." He also express- 
ed that he thought McNeese 
would probably be the Demons' 
toughest opponents but felt that 
the Purple and White could over- 
power the Cowboys' strong de- 
fense to come out on top. 

For the future, Howard has 

hopes of playing professional 
football after graduation. But 
right now he is only looking for- 
ward to one thing, "the game 
against Cameron State Saturday 

During the Louisiana College 
game Melvin received a touch- 
down pass from Don Guidry, but 
there was an infraction on the 
play and it was called back.

Hcmey Realizes Dream 

Wayne Haney knew he could 
catch a football when he report- 
ed for practice at Northwestern 
State College, but he was con- 
cerned about one other little 
item, making the squad. 

"I hoped I would just get to 
dress out," the former Fair 
Park ace, a Freshman at NSC, 
recalled this week, "but I did 
have confidence in my ability." 

Hancy not only made the squad 
and dressed out with the Demon 
varsity, but the 5-10, 165-pound 
split end found himself in the 
thick of things from the begin- 
ning of the season. 

In Norehwestern's 17-16 loss 
to Abilene Christian Sept. 14, 
Haney got enough to catch five 
passes for 79 yards. Then, in 
the Demon's 33-15 victory over 
Tennessee Tech, Haney snagged 
another Don Guidry aerial. 

Haney continued his fine play 
Saturday night with two catches 
as the Demons routed La. College. 
The quick receiver had 28 yards 
in receptions, including one 
diving catch in the Wildcat end- 
zone. That gave Haney his first 

college touchdown. 

In addition to scoring, Haney 
caught a 25-yard pass from Gui- 
dry on a fourth and nine situa- 
tion to set up Northwestern's 
first touchdown. That completion 
was cited by Demon coaches as 
the game, since it put NSC in 

Haney, who caught more than 
75 passes for some 1,500 yards 
and 22 touchdowns during his 
last two seasons at Fair Park, 
has found the college game to 
be a bit tougher. "College de- 
fensive backs are bigger and 
faster," he said. 

"I'm real fast so I try to out- 
smart the defensive backs," 
"Don has really helped me a lot, 
along with Coach Gabrel (back- 
field and end coach Pug), tell- 
ing me better ways to get open 
on hook and curl patterns." 

Haney added that he learned 
to come off the line quicker, 
moves and sure hands, has made 
him one of the Demon's top re- 
ceivers in his first season. 

The Cameron State Aggies will 
roll into Demon Stadium tomor- 
row night with a 1-3 record which 
does not reflect the true talent 
of the ball club. They are regard- 
ed in many circles as only a tune- 
up for THE GAME next week 
but tomorrow night's game 
should prove very interesting for 
the viewers. 

The Aggies are an independent 
team out of Oklahoma but they 
are trying to enter the Oklahoma 
Conference. They were recently 
awarded major college recogni- 

Vega to be Judge 
In '68 Olympics 

Northwestern State College 
gymnastics coach Armando Vega 
left here last week to join Rich- 
ard Loyd of NSC and the rest of 
the U.S. Olympic gymnastics 
team at their training camp at 
the Air Force Academy in Colo- 

The American contingent will 
fly to Mexico City Friday to com- 
plete their pre-olympic training. 
The 1968 Olympic games will get 
underway October 12 and con- 
tinue through October 27. 

In addition to keeping a close 
eye on Loyd, Vega will assist in 
the judging of competition at the 

Loyd, an Alexandria native, is 
the first Louisiana gymnast ever 
to be chosen to compete on a U.S. 
Olympic team. He earned a berth 
on the squad by placing third in 
the first team trials at Los An- 

Vega a veteran of three Olym- 
pic Games, said that the U.S. 
faces an uphill climb if it is to 
make a good showing in the '68 
Games. "We'll be very fortunate 
if we have a boy placing in the 
top ten", Vega said. 

Japan is the recognized world 
power in gymnastics and, al- 
though this year's American team 
is considered the best ever as- 
sembled, the Japanese figure to 
continue their domination of the 

tion from their junior college sta- 

Cameron is larger than the 
Demons as most of the Purple 
and White's foes are. They have 
an average of about 205 on the 
line and a very quick backfield 
that comes in at about 165 
pounds. The ground gaining re- 
sponsibilities lies on the capable 
shoulders of freshman halfback 
Jim Callip and a real scatback 
in the person of Clarence John- 
son. Callip has gained 373 yards 
in four games for an average of 
4.8 yards a clip. Quarterback 
James Colbert has rolled up 435 
yards in offense and scored five 

State uses a wide slot I for- 
mation and a varied offense. Their 
offense sets are not numerous 
but they have a multiple choice 
of plays, including a quarterback 
option with three variations. 
Colbert throws from both sprint- 
out and dropback formations. 
Coach Glenn Gossett rates Col- 
bert as a much better than aver- 
age college quarterback. 

A tremendous responsibility 
rests on secondary as they try 
and cover the Aggies' tremendous 
split end Ed Marshall. Marshall, 
who is 6'4" and weighs 185, owns 
10-flat speed in the 100. He has 
caught 19 passes for seven touch- 
downs. The remarkable aspect of 
the seven touchdowns is that the 
shortest score has been for 46 
yards. His catches have totaled 
558 yards. Marshall has excel- 
lene moves and is a big target. 
He is also a fine runner and can 
be used on the end around. 

The Aggies are not known as 

a real strong defensive team. 
They have good speed in the 
secondary and will mostly use 
a man to man coverage. They 
generally use a standard 4-3 
pro set which is similar to a 
6-1 that they also employ. 

Gossett said that his team 
would not use anything new. He 
hoped that the team would not 
show any signs of a letdown 
after the Northeast game or the 
La. Tech game to come. 

The Demons are expected to 
have an easy time of it but the 
game should be wide open and 
appealing to all fans. 

Intramural Scoop 

Touch football is in it's second 
week of intramural action and 
badminton kicked off Thursday, 
October 10. Coming up in the 
near future is volleyball and 

The volleyball tournament will 
begin Tuesday October 17 in the 
Men's Gym at 6:00 p.m. The dead- 
line for entries is October 15. The 
entries for basketball are to be 
submitted by October 24. Play is 
scheduled to begin October 29. 
There will be an entrance fee of 
$10 which will be refunded at the 
end of the tournament. On Octo- 
ber 28 at 4:00 p.m. there will be 
a meeting of the team representa- 
tives in the Men's Gym. 

This sports section is 
dedicated to the mem- 
ory of Mr. Robert Smith 
who passed away while 
watching his son Larry 
and the Demons per- 
form against Northeast 
Saturday night.

Field Engineering at IBM 

"It's one of the 
fastest routes 
to management!' 

"I joined IBM's Field Engineering Division be- 
cause I want to get into management as soon as 
possible," says Alan Greber. 

Alan has a B.S. degree. He joined IBM in 
July, 1967. He's now an Associate Customer 
Engineer responsible for the performance of IBM 
data processing equipment. 

"I took a close look and found that field engi- 
neering is one of the fastest growing areas in IBM. 
And it gives you a chance to learn the equipment 
and know the customer. So I put two and two 
together— the growth story and the job story— and 
decided that field engineering offers one of the 
fastest routes to management." 

Comprehensive schooling 

Alan started his IBM career with three months of 
school. He studied the operation of key punch and 
sorter machines, then went into tape drives, 
readers, and printers. He also studied basic pro- 
gramming and diagnostic programming. "By the 
*ime you're finished," says Alan, "you're ready to 
start solving major problems for IBM customers. 

"We work in small teams," says Alan. "Often my 
team is just me. I tackle the problem and find a 
solution. To me, that's rewarding. And it also 
indicates how quickly you can get a lot of 
responsibility in field engineering."

cm "Greek Hill." 

A party has been planned for

win over the Indians. 


TKE started their formal rush 
off with a bang this Fall with a 
dance featuring "Curley Davis 
and the Night Owls" at the Round 
1 party. Twenty five "Rush Girls" 
were present to entertain and 
dance with the rushees. These 
girls, members of the Teke Auxi- 
liary Organization, the Order of 
Diana, also served the Barbeque 
at the Round 2 party which was 
held on the Student Union Patio. 

October 1 was pledging day. 
New members are: Joe Dwal, 
James Odom, Tony Pasko, Lee 
Wise, Charlie Koonce, Mike Es- 


kew, Jim Beatty, George David, 

Steve Foster, Mike Costello and 

Lee Fisher. 
After two weeks of work-out, 

the Teke football team started 
the intramural season by defeat- 
ing Pi Kappa Phi 6-0, and Tri 
Delta Sigma 52-0. The Tekes are 
looking forward to meeting the 
other fraternity's teams on the 
football field. 

Rodeo Club 
Sponsors Tilt 

Northwestern State College's 
Rodeo Club is sponsoring a rodeo 
Oct. 23 and 24 which will be 
open to all students on campus. 

Members of the NSC Rodeo 
Club and all other approved ro- 
deo associations will not be eli- 
gible to participate in the two- 
day event at (the Natchitoches 
Parish Fairgrounds. Rodeo Club 
officials said the event was strict- 
ly for "tenderfeet." 

Mens events will be bareback 
riding, bull riding and wild steer 
handling. Girls will compete in 
a Sadie Hawkins race, a goose 
scramble and goat sacking. 

The entrance fee will be $3 
for all standard events and $5 
for bareback riding and bull rid- 

Women's events will consist of 
three-girl teams, and the entrance 
fee will be $3 per team. Girls 
will also be allowed to compete 
for the title of Rodeo Queen. 

High Schoolers 
On Campus 
For Testing 

Scheduled to arrive on campus 
Oct. 19 to take ACT tests are 79 
high school seniors, reported Dr. 
Tandy McElwee, the director of 
the counseling and testing center. 

Although these high school 
seniors are under no obligation 
to attend the college where they 
take the test, Dr. McElwee feels 
that Northwestern will get the 
majority of these seniors. One of 
the more important factors in this 
prediction is distance from home 
for the students. 

There will be a large number 
of seniors taking the test else- 
where over the nation, and even 
in other countries. Many of them 
will have their scores sent to 

Although at NSC admissions 
are not made by ACT scores, the 
results are used for assignment to 
classes. All NSC freshmen must 
take the test before registration 
for their first coellg semester.

Baptist Students List Fall Activities 

The Baptist Student Union has 
begun its fall slate of activities 
with football, evening vesper 
services, after-game socials, and 
the state convention being held 
in Alexandria this weekend. 

The state convention will in- 
volve well over a thousand Bap- 
tist students from across the state 
in the hearing of various speak- 
ers. Among those to address the 
students will be Ron Willis who 
is a missionary to the Hippies in 
Los Angelos, Cal. 

The evening vesper service us- 
ually feature student speakers 
from this campus. Occasionally 

GRE Examinations 
Given October 26 

Graduate Record Examinations 
(GRE) will be offered to NSC 
students October 26 and January 
18. Applications to take the test 
this month must be made by 
October 11, according to Dr. 
Tandy McElwee, director of the 
counseling and testing center. 

Students may get application 
blanks for the test at the testing 
center, located on the first floor 
of Caldwell Hall. 

For entry in most graduate 
schools, GRE scores are either 
encouraged or required. 

Graduate schools use the test 
scores to screen applicants for the 
various programs they offer. The 
tests measure ability in general 
scholastic areas and fields of 

however, pastors from the city 
are heard in addition to invited 
guests from elsewhere. Vespers 
are at 6 p.m. 

The BSU is also participating 
in the intramural touch football 
program. Larry Bazer of Shreve- 
port is head of the BSU sports 

Also for the men is the Men's 
Fellowship group which sponsor- 
ed an ice cream feed Thursday 

Girls who might be interested 
in the Baptist Student Union al- 
so have a varied program of ac- 
tivities. The Young Women's 
Auxilliary provides coeds with 
the opportunity for fellowship 
and missionary study. Also 
prominent are the women's intra- 
mural sports in which the Bap- 
tists have been top contenders 
for years. 

According to BSU director, 
Myra Gulledge, the Baptist Stu- 
dent Union is not merely a clos- 
ed door society for Babtists, but 
a place of fellowship for Chris- 
tians of all denominations. 

Activities this year are taking 
place in a new building across 
from Scheib Hall on College Ave., 
which was constructed at a cost 
of over $200,000. Featured in this 
building are ping pong tables, a 
shuffleboard court, a stereo, a 
color television, pianos, and 
places in which to study. 

The building was completed 
this summer and was occupied 
by the students beginning this 
fall. President of the BSU is 
Henry L. Burns of Shongaloo.

Cadet Determined To 
Fulfill His Obligation 

by Charles Skinner 

Editor's Note: This story is the 
product of an interview by the 
editor and Executive Officer 
Henry L. Burns of Company C 
with Cadet James Holly. 

In an age of draft card burn- 
ers, demonstrators, and protesters 
of various types, its is always re- 
freshing to see a man like Cadet 
James Holly who loves his coun- 

Holly lost an eye in a hunting 
accident in the month of Septem- 
ber. One of the pellets of his 
shotgun ricocheted from a near- 
by body of water and embedded 
his right eye. 

The accident gave him a valid 
excuse not to serve in the armed 
forces, but Cadet Holly is deter- 
mined to fulfill his military obli- 
gation through the ROTC pre* 

He feels that every person has 
an obligation to give service to 
his country and that this obliga- 
tion is his to fulfill if he possib- 
ly can. 

When asked why he wanted to 
serve in the ROTC program, Hol- 
ly stated that he feels that the 

ROTC program is a way to bet- 
ter himself, to gain discipline 
and self control, and to remain 
with his friends that he has made 
in the corps. 

It is Holly's hope that he will 
be granted a waiver and that he 
will be able to continue in the 
ROTC advance program despite 
his physical handicap. 

Closing the interview, Holly 
said that he hoped nobody would 
tell him that guns weren't daner-

Demons, Tech Clash for 53rd Time, 

Week of Activities

Game Caps Big 

NSC, Bulldogs 
Activities To 
Dominate City 

by Linda Towry 

Hundreds of Demon and Bull- 
dogs supporters pour into an ex- 
pectant Shreveport this weekend 
to witness the annual football 
classic at State Fair Stadium be- 
tween these two traditional foes. 

"Wreck Tech" and "Dump the 
Demons" buttons will blossom 
forth all over the city as each 
school wages a spirited campaign 
to "out-do" the other. 

A full day of activities has 
been planned for the students 
of both schools, for whom Satur- 
day is the climax of a full week 
of pep rallies, car caravans, and 
frenzied preparations. 

Starting off Saturday's activi- 
ties will be the annual lunch- 
eon, this year sponsored by the 
Shreveport Chamber of Com- 
merce. Mayor Clyde Fant of 
Shreveport will be present, and 
invitations have been extended 
to the' mayors of both Ruston and 
Natchitoches. Guests will in- 
cluded the queens and courts 
from each school, SGA Officials 
and their dates, and the Deans 
and their wives. 

After the luncheon, the parade 
will form on Baker Street at 
1:45. From there, it will move 
down Baker, left on Edward, 
down to Texas, and then to Mc- 
Neil Street. NSC will turn down 
Milam and hold their pep rally 
on the Milam Street side of the 
Courthouse. Tech will go on to 
the Texas Street side for their 
pep rally. 

Following the Rallys which 
will be led by the NCC band 
and cheerleaders, students will 
have a chance for a short breath- 
er before the pre-game ceremon- 

Beginning at 7:30 p.m., will be 
a performance by the NSC band. 
Following this, the Black 
Knights drill team will march on- 
to the field and line up at the 
center of the NSC stands. 

As the band plays, the NSC 
State Fair Court will march onto 
the field those girls who were 
elected to the court will be es- 
courted by various members of 
the Student Government Associ- 

These will be followed by the 
Queen of the NSC Court, Marice 
Fowler who will be escourted by 
SGA President, Henry L. Burns. 
Other members of the court are 
Marsha Bella, Karen Karisney, 
Janis Lowe, Carla McCain, Shar- 
on Parker, Elaine Sanders, Char- 
lene Wheeler, and Brenda Wil- 

The kick-off for the ball game 
will follow the pledge of allegi- 
ance and prayer and another 
State Fair Game will be under- 

After the game, students will 
see the State Fair as well as 
dances sponsored by fraternities 
from NSC and La. Tech. 


GET THE MESSAGE — Barbara Slack, Northwestern State College 
senior sociology major from Springhill, wants nobody to mistake 
her loyalty this weekend in the traditional State Fair football classic 
between Northwestern and Louisiana Tech in Shreveport. North- 
western students had a full week of parades, pep rallies and other 
activities planned leading up to the Saturday night extravaganza in 
State Fair Stadium.

As Tech Seeks First GSC Win 

By James Walker 
Sauce Managing Editor 

A week of frenzied pep rallies, parades, bonfires and the 
like, comes to a head Saturday night at State Fair Stadium 
in Shreveport when the two most offensive teams in the Gulf 
States Conference collide head on in a game that looks to 
have the makings of a classic. 

law of averages, things don't look 
too good for the Demons, but 
for those who discount such 
things as just being superstition, 
and look at the tangible aspects, 
things look to be in good shape. 

The Demons with halfbacks 
Vic Nyvall and Tony Papas and 
fullback Richard Ware compli- 
menting quarterback Donald Gui- 
dry's sharp passing to ends Al 
Phillips, Steve Gaspard and 
Wayne Haney, with a grinding 
ground attack, look like they are 
for real, and look to have a 
definite shot at the GSC cham- 

The game is a must for the De- 
mons if they hope to keep pace 
with GSC co-leaders USL and 

One of those intangibles that 
must not be overlooked going 
into the game though is the fact 
that Tech is due. 

The Bulldogs opened the sea- 
son, by defeating two major col- 
lege teams, Mississippi State and 
East Carolina, before falling to 
GSC foes McNeese and USL, des- 
pite rolling up almost 600 yards 
total offense in the latter con- 

Tech will be breathing fire in 
an attempt to prove that 0-2 
league record isn't indicative of 
their ballclub. 

With Bradshaw hurling strik- 
es to the likes of Tommy Spinks, 
Ken Liberto and Larry Brewer, 
with Guidry firing strikes of his 
own to Phillips, Gaspard and 
Haney and sending Nyvall, Papa 
and Ware tearing for yardage 
on the ground, with the likes of 
Lester Latino, Larry Gaudet and 
Walter Edler battling a tough 
Tech offensive line, and last but 
certainly not least, with some 
30,000 wild-eyed fans cheering 
madly in non-stop fashion, it 
should make for a mighty inter- 
esting night. 

Louisiana Tech's frustrated 
Bulldogs, with rifle armed Terry 
Bradshaw leading the way, should 
be, as the old saying goes, "high 
as a kite", when they trot onto 
the field against the suprising 
Demons, who, by the looks of all 
those pep rallies, parades and 
bonfires, should have just as 
much adrenelin flowing as the 

It's the 53rd renewal of a ser- 
ies that started back in 1907 
when the Demons edged the Bull- 
dogs 19-14 and the closeness of 
that first game set the pattern 
for the entire series as most of 
the games have been decided by 
little more than a touchdown. 
Tech leads in the series 33-15, 
mostly on the strength of a 10 
game winning streak from 1944- 
52, winning twice in the 1945 
season, 18-7 and 7-2. 

The contest annually is con- 
sidered the make or break game 
of the season for both teams, 
and both feel that if it is the 
only game won during the season, 
they have achieved a measure of 
success. By the same token, if 
it were the only loss on one or 
the other's record, a lot of the 
luster would be lost from the

A Hairy Episode 

In colonial days, people had effective methods with 
which to dispose of those who did not in every way conform 
to their own ideals. Such as witch burnings. 

The trials were fair and impartial. If you were different 
you were a witch, and it has always been easy to prove 
someone different. The oddball was then taken to a nearby 
stake and burned for the pleasure of all passersby. 

This southern college in the Twentieth Century is con- 
fronted by a similar problem, different people. Instead of 
witch burnings we have hair cuttings. Instead of an august 
religious judicial body, we have a band of disguised masked 
marauders engaged in an ill-conceived attempt to bring about 
conformity on the campus. The philosophy of these raids 
is that the only thing wrong with a long-haired person is 
his long hair, and if you cut that off then everything will 
be all right. 

The inevitable result of this sort of action is a renewed 
determination to keep long hair by the long hairs and a 
higher level of hatred and suspicion on everyone's part. 
There was a time when members of the student body banded 
together in a common cause. . . . but no more, for we are 
reduced from sharing to shearing; from helping to hindering; 
and from a college to a battleground. 

The real need of this campus is a new kind of love. 
Not the kind portrayed by grotesque figures in a "love-in." 
But the king of love that accepts people for what they are. 
The type of love that is contagious and engenders like feel- 
ings in those we meet. The type of love that gives rather than 
tears down. 

The problem? There's really none there. The way to 
love? Do unto others as you would have. . . . 

Minutes of SGA 


Burns called the meeting to order. 
Invocation by Fowler, followed by 
pledge of allegiance. The reading of

Kevil reported that a Food Services 
Committee needs to be set up in order

are too many.

After three years of habitation 
on this campus, the most out- 
standing thing to say about NSC 
is that this institution is steeped 
in the tradition of the conserva- 
tive South. Politically, socially, 
economically and intellectually, 
the greater part of this campus 
is conservative in every sense of 
that word. 

As proof of my permise, I 
would like to call public atten- 
tion to the Beautification Com- 
mittee of West Rapides (soon to 
be expanded to Natchitoches Par- 
ish). Never has such a benefi- 
cent and altruistic organization 
graced our campus!- Imagine 
the sight of twenty of NSC's 
finest giving away free haircuts 
in the privacy of one's own 
room, and at no charge to the 
benefactor of this beauty! It is 
a sight to warm the heart of any 

Lacking the nominal adminis- 
trative OK, this group of fine, 
upstanding youngsters have so 
far worked without the recogni- 
tion due to such a movement. 
The free-mindedness and unbias- 
ed attitude of this organization 
brings forward only the best of 
what NSC has to offer in their 
enrollees. It is in this spirit that 
I hereby ask for public accla- 
mation of this group and their 
elevation to the position of 
honor that they deserve. The 
understanding of democratic prin- 
ciples and logical rationale shown 
in their actions heerby warrants 
them a place of renown among 
the service clubs of this campus. 

Even though my hair is long- 
er than six inches all over my 
head, and excepting the fact that 
my upper lip is hampered by a 
moustache, I would like to in- 
vite these gentlemen to room 
124 W. Rapides to share with 
me their experiences and know- 
ledge of true freedom and broth- 
erly love.

The Louisiana Association of 
Student Body Presidents Sunday 
adopted a resolution calling up- 
on the governor, the legislators, 
and every citizen of Louisiana to 
realize the present dilema of 
Louisiana's state supported col- 
leges and universities and pro- 
vide a solution at the lowest pos- 
sible cost to the student. The ac- 
tion came as a result of the Stud- 
ent Body Presients' meeting in 
Baton Rouge which was attended 
by the ten presidents of their 
respective state schools. 

Malcolm Ehrhardt of Louisiana 
State University in New Orleans, 
spokesman for the group, stated 
that the adoption of this resolu- 
tion by the 10 Student Body Pres- 
idents greatly enhances individ- 
ual efforts toward preventing a 
student fee increase. "I feel the 
action taken by the L.A.S.B.P. is 
a great step forward by students 
to make the public aware of the 
importance of state supported 
education at the lowest cost to 
the students who are in many 
cases supporting themselves 
while attending college," Ehrh- 
ardt said. 

Along with the resolution the 
Association also passed a pro- 
jected program for explaining 
their position before the legisla- 
tive session beginning on Novem- 
ber 10, 1968. Ehrhardt continued, 
"We are planning to meet with 
the legislative budgetary com- 
mittee and possibly have an in- 
terview with Governor McKeith- 
en. This association represents 
the top echelon of student lead- 
ers in Louisiana who are interest- 
ed in maintaining the low cost of 
quality education for those stud- 
ents who consider it a genuine 
privilege to attend a university 
and who otherwise would be pre- 
ventead from obtaining a college 

The Association is planning 
another session on November 3-4 
in Monroe, Louisiana to discuss 
further plans before the begin- 
ning of the November fiscal ses-

Educational Exhibits 
To Be Shown At Fair 

Texas Musicians Give Recital Here 

The State Department of Edu- 
cation designated the college to 
be hosts this year for a gigantic 
State Fair education exhibit. 

Orville J. Hanchey, head of the 
iscoordination chairman for the 
nine state colleges and univer- 
sities which will be represented 
in the display in Shreveport 
during the State Fair. 

Colleges and universities in- 
cluded in the display are North- 
western, Louisiana Tech, North- 
of Southwestern Louisiana, Mc- 
Neese, Nicholls, Southern and 

The display booths for each 
college and the State Department 
of Education were constructed on 
the Northwestern campus and 
moved this week to the Educa- 
tion Building at the State Fair- 

Representatives from the col- 
leges were in Shreveport early 
this week to prepare their ex- 

hibits for the formal opening of 
the fair. 

Hanchey, who is working with 
an exhibit chairman from each of 
the state colleges and universities 
said the theme of the display is 
"Education — Louisiana — 1968." 

William J. Dodd, state superin- 
tendent of education, made the 
preliminary plans and arrange- 
ments for the exhibit, which will 
be open to the public through- 
out the State Fair. 

Included in the central dis- 
play on the State Department of 
Education will be a model of the 
new $6 million Education Build- 
ing in Baton Rouge and photo- 
graphs of Dodd and other educa- 
tion officials and pictures of all 
the presidents of the state's in- 
stitutions of higher learning. 

Hanchey and State Fair Of- 
ficials have estimated that some 
175,000 persons will view the

of electric companies. 


what's in it for you? 

Electricity for your home costs less today — that's one important result of 
investor-ownership. Over the last 25 years, the average cost-per-kilowatt-hour for 
residential electric service from Louisiana's Investor-Owned Electric Companies has 
dropped steadily. Today you pay 50% less for your residential electric service than 
25 years ago! 

Your electric service is even more reliable — partially because the Investor- 
Owned Electric Companies '^facilities are interconnected. These interconnections help 
maintain a balanced flow of electric power in the state — plenty of power when heavy 
demands occur and from the most economical source. In time of emergency, inter- 
connection assures you a back-up power supply. 

Money is invested in Louisiana by people in all walks Of life— including thousands 
of Louisianians. Their investments in utility stocks and bonds are put to work here in 
the state to expand and improve electric facilities— provide more and better electric 
service— create more jobs and help attract industry to Louisiana! 

Louisiana's Investor-Owned companies pay sizeable taxes — local, state and 
federal. Last year their combined annual tax bill totaled more than $66 million! 

These companies are regulated by governmental agencies, which have authority over 
rates and service requirements. You are assured of reliable service at low, fair rates. 

Good things are going for Louisiana with low-cost electric service from the 
INVESTOR-OWNED ELECTRIC COMPANIES! Louisiana Power & Light Co. • Gulf 
States Utilities Co. • Southwestern Electric Power Co. • Central Louisiana Electric

Soccer Technique 
Invades Football 

"There is really no compari- 
sion of football and soccer". 
These are the words of frestmen 
Bill Lytton who uses the uncon- 
ventional soccer style of kicking 
to aid the Demon effort. 

Lytton learned and played the 
game of soccer in Brazil where 
his parents were and still 
are missionaries. He became 
very proficient in controlling the 
soccer ball and at the time did 
not even consider playing foot- 
ball. But when Bill returned to 
the States, he was introduced 
to football and things began to 

Lytton made his football debut 
at Jackson-Callaway High School 
in Mississippi during his junior 
year. That year he was 1-4 in the 
field goal division and 13-13 in 
the PAT catagory. Bill moved to 
Natchitoches in his senior year 
and was ineligable to play. 

The 5-9, 160 pound kicker 
approaches the ball from an angle 
and boots the ball with the instep 
of his foot. Although Bill is left 
handed and usually kicks with 
his left foot, he can and some- 
time does use his right. Bill is 
now booting the pigskin accurate- 
ly form 40 yards out in pratice. 

Lytton uses soccer shoes in- 
stead of football cletes because 
they don't have as much bulk 
leather on the side therefore 
being a great deal lighter. He 
also wears light pads and some- 
times no thigh and knee pads at 
all. But after getting knocked 
around a little he has decided 
against not wearing these pads. 
He is expected to be a great asset 
to the Demons during the next 
few years. Right now he is a lit- 
tle awkward off football's ways 
and means but with a little ex- 
perience he might develope to 
be one of the many great Demon

A couple of newcomers to the 
varsity, Charles Bloodworth (6-8)

give the Demons added depth to

Demons Meet Bulldogs in Classic 

THE GAME of the year for 
most football fans of ancient 
rivalries Northwestern and La. 
Tech, will transpire tomorrow 
night before 30,000 plus, scream- 
ing students and alumni at State 
Fair Stadium in Shreveport. 
Tech leads in the long series 
33-15. There have been four ties 
since the series beginning in 

NSC will trying for their third 
win in a row against the Bull- 
dogs. The Demons have never 
copped the hallowed game three

straight years but they are com- 
ing off of a 28-7 win in 1966 and 
a 7-0 decision last year. 

The Bulldogs go into the game 
with a 2-2 record. Their wins 
have come over major college 
opponents Mississippi State and 
East Carolina University. The 
Canines have fallen twice in a 
row to GSC opponents McNeese 
and USL. Northwestern owns a 
4-1 record with a 1-0 slate in GSC 
action. The conference win came 
over Northeast. 

As usual the Demons will be 
out-weighed in the contest. Tech 
comes in with an offensive av- 
erage weight of 203. Their line 
averages 210 and the large back- 
field averages 191 pounds. The 
Bulldogs defense weighs in at 
206 pounds. NSC's line averages 
what the Tech backfield does 
while the Demon backfield 
starts at 174 pounds. The Purple 
and White have been opposed by 
heavier teams all season, but the 
quickness and agility of their 
players hasn't been matched. 

Tech relies heavily on the 

golden arm of their fine chunker 
Terry Bradshaw. Bradshaw and 
his mates have averaged just un- 
der 25 points per outing. The 
Canies have shown only one main 
offensive formation. They run 
out of a pro-set with a wide re- 
ceiver. Occasionally they will 
shift into a slot L Bradshaw has 
been effective with drop back 
passes. A fine pass blocking line 
enables him to throw from a 
pocket most of the time. 

Coach Glen Gossett said 
that he thought Tech was a 
passing team, but only because 
they have a fine corps of re- 
ceivers and the rifle-armed Brad- 
shaw. He noted that the back- 
field probably averaged as much 
per rush as anyone but they 
didn't get as much action. 

On the defensive side of things, 
Tech has given up 19 points a 
game. They play the standard col- 
lege Oklahoma defense which is 
a 5-2 with a four deep secondary 
playing a zone defense most of 
the time. 

La. Tech has a towering de- 
fensive line led by the ends.

sey, weighs 225 and is also 6' 5" 
tall. Both boys are mobile for 
their size and will present a pro- 
blem to the line of the Demons. 
Gossett was concerned with the 
range of the two giants and he 
stated that a perfect block or a 
double teaming was the only way 
to stop them. 

NSC has the momentum going 
for them in the contest with four 
straight wins. The explosive of- 
fense is averaging 28 points per 
contest and the surprisingly 
stingy defense has yielded only 56 

Tough Tony Papa, who suf- 
fered a painful hip pointer a- 
gainst Cameron State, is expected 
to see a lot of action against the 
traditional rivals. A blood ves- 
sel had ruptured inside one of 
Tony's hip muscles but as Gos- 
sett said, "If it is humanly pos- 
sible for Tony to play, I know 
that he will want to be in there." 
Papa has been on treatment of 
ultra-sound to relax and stimu- 
late the muscle. 

Amid the frenzy and excite- 
ment of the game and its splen- 
dor, it must be remembered that 
it is still a most important game 
in regard to the conference race 
which USL is currently leading 
with a 2-0 mark. Tech has already 
suffered two conference losses, 
and must win if they hope to re- 
tain any chance of sharing the 
crown. The Bulldogs have every- 
thing to gain and nothing to lose, 
except of course their personal 
satisfaction of seeing the Demons 

For NSC it will be the second 
hurdle to cross in their quest for 
their second GSC title in three 
years. The game will be a great 
one as most of tht recent years 
contests have been. 

This reporter sees the final 
score to be NSC 21, Techl7.

Cameron State Folds As Demons 
Prepare to Take on Bulldogs 

The Cameron State Aggies 
provided the "tune-up for La. 
Tech" that they were meant to 
be when they fell 48-7 last Sat- 
urday. The Aggies are 1-4 on the 
year. NSC has taken four in a 
row since an opening game loss. 

The "track meet" started when 
the Demons took the opening 
kickoff and quickly drove 68 
yards for a score. The drive was 
capped by Al Phillips third TD 
catch of the year. The bomb from 
Don Guidry covered 37 yards. 
Rusty James' PAT was good. 

Stated Clarence Johnson bob- 
led a punt and the Demons gob- 
bled it in on the Cameron eleven 
yard line. Two plays later Rich- 
ard Ware scored on a two-yard 
plunge. James converted. 

Ware, who is not known for 
having blinding speed, showed 
that he is quick when he burst 
up the middle on a quick-hitter, 
and scooted 58 yards for the 
third Demon touchdown. It was 
Ware's second TD in the game 
and his sixth on the year. He 
leads the Demons in scoring. 

The Guidry to Phillips combin- 
ation clicked again with 9:52 left 
in the half. Guidry threaded the 
needle to Phillips on a flag pat- 
tern. Jame's kick made the score 

The first team left at this point 
but that didn't stop Ronnie 
Whatley from recovering a fum- 
ble on the Aggies'16 yard line. 
Southpaw quarterback Mike 
Pool directed the short scoring 
drive which ended with halfback 
Tommy Wallis scoring from one- 
yard out. James made the PAT 
good to the first half scoring at 

After taking a second half Ag- 
gie punt, NSC marched 56 yards 
in nine running plays for their 
sixth touchdown. Tom Hagin bull- 
ed over from the one. Left foot- 
ed soccer-style kicker Bill Lyt- 
ton added the forty-second point. 

Midway through the third 
stanza the Purple and White 
again capitalized on one of their 
five fumble recoveries. Pool di- 
rected the 19-yjard drive that 
was headed by fullback George 
Green's eight-yard TD romp. It 
was the final score for the De- 
mons as the snap from center on 
the conversion was off the tar- 

On the first play of the last 
quarter, Milton King danced 17 
yards up the middle for the first 
and last Aggie touchdown. The 
75-yard drive was highlighted by 
a 41-yard James Colbert to split 



end Ed Marshall. Jerry Young 
kicked the extra point for the 
Aggies to end the scoring.

The NSC cross country track 
team has been active for the past 
thret weeks. On October 5 the 
Demon thinclads took on North- 
east dropping to the Indians 
23-36. Last week the distance men 
took on LSU and Southeastern 
with LSU gainig top honors with 
23points, Southeastern acquiring

Paul Truman has been out- 
standing for the Demons. Against 
the Northeast Indians Paul ran 
the 3.1 mile course in a winning 
time of 14:39. He also posted a 
winning time against Southeast- 
ern and LSU on a three mile run 
in 14:08. 

Other members of the team in- 
clude Millard Mangrum, Ronnie 
Haworth, Butch Soignier, Rob- 
ert Kennedy, Joey Wilson, and 
Leroy Sutton. 

The Demon tracksters will host 
Northeast Friday, October 18 
here beginning at 3 p.m. on a 
3.8 mile course. On October 25 
the Demons will entertain Mc- 
Neese, Northeast, and Louisiana 

When Ken Hrapmann came to 
Northwestern to play football, he 
didn't really know that he would 
be holding down a varsity posi- 
tion at defensive safety. In fact, 
he didn't even know what posi- 
tion he was going to try out for. 

Ken went both ways for Holy 
Cross in New Orleans, playing 
dtfensive safety, halfback, and 
sometimes even calling the plays 
from the number one position. 
As far as Ken was concerned it 
didn't really matter what he play- 
edjust as long as it was football. 
As it looks now, a much better 
choice could not have been made. 

The freshmen gridder has grab- 
bed four stray passes to lead the 
GSC in interceptions. 

Hrapmann stated that the big- 
gest change for him from high 
school football to college was 
the extra speed and quickness 
that all of the players seemed 
to have. Hrapmann himself owns 
10-flat speed in the century dash 
and weighs 155 pounds. Kenny 
,is comfortable at his present 
weight but he says he would 
like to be bigger. 

Hrapmann couldn't be much 
bigger on guts. At 5'9" he ad- 
mits that he gets run over some- 
times but he tries to hit his man 
high till help arrives. 

Hrapmann has the greatest re- 
spect for cornerback Dick Con- 
cillio and the other safety John 
Boogaerts. Concilio and Boogaerts 
have helped Ken tremendously 

in gaining experience and know- 
ledge of receivers.

Judicial Branch 
Explained By 

Associate Judges of the new 
judicial branch of the Student 
Government Association were in- 
troduced to the Association and 
Parliamentarian Larry McCollom 
outlined the aims, purposes and 
procedure of the body at Monday 
night's regular meeting. 

The SGA also heard a report 
on lengthy delays in the serving 
of food at Iberville dining hall, 
passed a motion requiring a $540 
increase in the proposed budget 
and began finalizing plans for 
Tech Weekend. 

McCollom presented associated 
judges Gary Haggard, Spanky 
Baker, Ronnie Brown, Ronnie 
Spiller, and Bob Lee and also 
briefed the SGA on the court. 

The court, which will officially 
be titled the NSC Student Court, 
was created to provide "a hear- 
ing for the students on constitu- 
tional and disciplinary matters", 
according to McCollom. 

McCollom, who will serve as 
the chief justice of the court, al- 

so told the associatiqn that a 
freshman judge would be named 
following the election of fresh- 
man associates. 

Bruce Kevil presented a report 
on the delays in the cafeteria, and 
on the alleged "breaking in line" 
of some individuals. After length- 
y discussion on the issue, Presi- 
dent Henry Burns instructed Ke- 
vil to look further into the mat- 

SGA treasurer Tony Rispoli 
called for the $540 increase in 
the budget, saying that $370 for 
Blue Key blazers, and $170 for 
laundry scholarships had not 
been included in the original 
budget submitted to the SGA. 

The association voted unanim- 
ously to include the figures in the 
budget. Gary DiGilormo reported 
on Tech Weekend, saying that 
"thingsare coming along nicely, 
and we anticipate very little 
trouble in making the final ar- 
rangements". (For complete in-

ball and volleyball season are 
viewed with equal anticipation. 

Forty-three boys were pledged 
this semester and they have been 
busy making signs for the foot- 
pall games and attending to var- 
ious work details. Future plans 
include a campus clean-up pro- 
gram and a bus trip to the NSC- 
McNeese game. 

Sigma Tau 

Sigma Tau Fraternity is also 
planning a boistous Tech Week- 
end. The brothers will leave this 
afternoon for Shreveport. After 
the game, Sigma Tau is holding 
an open party which will feature 
the well-known group from 
Springhill, "The Uniques." 

Sigma; Tau's newly acquired 
mascot, Tau, has bean a great 
asset to the farternity. Tau is 
seen at all the ball games and 
has helped not only improve Sig- 
m Tau School Spirit, but has 
made the other fraternities con- 
sider a mascot for themselves. 

The brothers would like to 
wish the demon players good 
luck this week end. Sigma Tau 
hopes to make their big party 
Saturday night a victory dance. 
This win would make three in 
a row for the dfemona Sigma 
Taus joins the other greeks in 
hoping for a "Wrecked Tech". 
Kappa Alpha 
Tonight the KA's will open 
the Tech Weekend with a party 
ait the Elks Club in hreveport 
with the brothers from Louisi- 
ana Tech. 

The party will last from 8-1, 
with the "American Sound of 
Music" providing the entertain- 
ment. Tomorrow night the broth- 
ers will be seated together at 
the ball game, as will all the 
other fraternities. As in the past, 
chartered buses will take all 
KA's and their dates to and from 
the ballgame. Following the 
game, a closed party for the bro- 
thers will be held at the Elks 
Club with the well-known "Morn- 
ing After" providing the music. 
This party will be from 11-4. 

This year, under Brother Wayne 
Branton's leadership, Kappa Al- 
pha Order is striving to build a 
greater and more meaningful 
name for itself. The brothers as 
a group plan to attend church at 
least once a month. Last Sunday 
KA's and their dates worshiped 
in the First Baptist Church of 
Natchitoches. The fraternity hop- 
es to visit every denomination in 
the future in order to gain a 
greater insight into the Christian 
ideals of Kappa Alpha men. 

KA's are now in second place 
in IFC football intramurals 
after defeating TKE and Tri Del- 
ta Sigma last week. 

The brothers wish to welcome 
Brother Clark Aldridge back to 
the Chapter as the new faculty 
advisor. Aldridge is an alumni 
of Gamma Psi Chapter, and now 
serves on the administration. 
Tau Kappa Epsilon 
Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity 
held a dance after the Cameron 
State game Sturday night with 
"The Mystery Men" providing 
the music. A main high-light was 
provided when several of the bro- 
thers took over the instruments 
for their own rendition of "Dou- 
ble Shot", a song made popular 
by the "Swingin Medallions." 

Tekes have two parties planned 
for the coming weekend. Friday 
night will be a private party for 
the brothers, but Saturday nights 
dance, to be held at the 40 & 8 
Club on Cross Lake, will be open 
to the public. The dance, schedul-

pledges and dates attended a buf- 
fet dinner at the home of brother 
Garland Riddle after visiting Tri 
Delta's president Eddie Sholmer 
in Leesville hospital.

Phi Mu 

Phi Mu Pledge Officers were 
elected for the Fall Semester. 
They are: Lyndia Webb, presi- 
dent; Fern McGraw, vice-presi- 
dent; Melaine Lee, recording sec- 
retary; Mini Heinrich, correspond- 
ing secretary; and Rhonda Bright, 

To encourage the football play- 
ers for the Northeast game, Phi 
Mu made a candy basket for 
them. Karen Alston, Lyndia 
Webb, Carol Adams, Sylvia Hayes, 
Sally Wells, and Winnie Darhin 
presented it, with the assistance 
of Coach Gossett. 

In connection with the Natchi- 
toches Historical Tour, Phi Mu 
pledges sold coffee, cokes, and 
donuts at the Wells' House. Syl- 
via Hayes was Committee Chair- 
man. The profit is to be used to 
buy toys for the Phi Mu Toy Cart 
at the Natchitoches Parish Hos- 
pital. Toy Carts for children's 
wards of local hospitals are one 
of many service projects of Phi 
Mu Sorority. 

Sigma Kappa 

The Delta Mu Chapter of Sig- 
ma Chapter of Sigma Kappa So- 
rority held an informal meeting 
Tuesday night before the pep ral- 
ly. The actives and pledges then 

attended the rally carrying signs 
and making plenty of noise. 
Pledges announced that no actives 
are to be around the house on 
October 30th. 

Carla McCoy was chosen pledge 
of the week last week. The pledge 
of the week is chosen for her 
bard work and dedication to her 
sorority. A rose is presented to 
the chosen girl every week at the 
pledge meeting. 

Tri Sigma 

Tri Sigmas have enjoyed act- 
ivities this year in a newly decor- 
ated sorority house. The outside 
received a fresh coat of paint and 
a new front door. New drapes 
were hung to compliment the re- 
finished furniture. 

New pledges have kept busy 
thus for with weekly meetings, 
sign painting sessions, football 
games, pep rallies, and house 
cleaning duties. The sisters and 
pledges presented a skit at the 
pep rally preceding to Northeast 
game, and walked away with the 
spirit stick. 

Members have purchased a 
new uniform to wear this sem- 
ester. It consists of a white skirt 
and blazer with a purple blouse. 

Tri Sigma wished to extend a 
special thanks to Kappa Alpha 
Fraternity for waxing their 
floors last Friday. 

Delta Zeta 

Alpha Sigma Alpha is making 
big plans for this semester. The 
weekend of October 18-20 has 
a double meaning for the sisters. 
Their newest chapter-Gamma 

Sigma, at Nichols State College 
in Thibodeaux, will be formerly 

A slumber party was held after 
the Tennessee Tech game to wel- 
come new pledges. Big sisters for 
the new members will be kept 
secret until Homecoming when 
the annual big sister-little sister 
slumber party will be held. 

Pledge ciass officers elected 
are: Rosalyn Schwarz, president; 
Kathy Crowly, vice-president; 
Candy Cates, secretary; Beth 
Pugh, treasurer; and Heather 
McKee, chaplain. 

Alpha Sigs thought for the 

Alpha Sigma Alpha 

Delta Zeta Sorority has been 
very active this week, partici- 
pating in pep rallies, parades, 
and Let's Wreck Tech sessions. 
Delta Zeta sisters joined Kappa 
Sigma pledges in a pep rally

Carrire was master of cermonies, 
and the 1968 State Fair Court 
was presented- - too bad Kappa 
Sigma Pledges aren't really al- 
lowed to be on the court. 

Pledges have taken quite a 
load off the shoulders of the act- 
tives as they have painted signs 
and decorated cars for the par- 
aes and for the coming game this 

Freshman in all greek groups 
are looking forward to their first 
state fair game as a member of a

Unidentified Clippers Harry Campus Men 

by Charles Skinner 

Unidentified hair clippers have 
been at work on the campus in 
the past week shearing the ton- 
sures of several NSC men. 

The group is reportedly made 
up of six boys who entered rooms 
unannounced and clad in stock- 
ings. The distinguished crew then 
proceeded to relieve victims of 
their profuse hair. 

Also incident to this increas- 
ing concern over hair have been 
telephone calls bearing threats 
to those wearing long hair as well 
as members of the administra- 
tion who have attempted to look 
into the matter. 

A party of the victims (whose 
names must remain confidential) 
has stated that they plan to file 
suit against someone for this 
continued harrassment. 

This party said that the main 
problem was not the haircut, but 
the fear of loss of study time 
and the fear of being mugged in 
the street at night. One already 
reported the loss of $10 in a 
skirmish with the masked hair 

Current Sauce reporters have 
sought to find out enough infor- 
mation on this subject to render 
a report including names and 
charges but such has simply not

If further trouble of this kind 
continues to take place, the 
chances are that someone will 
be hurt since threats of physical 
violence have been made. 

As soon as further informa- 
tion concerning this can be made 

available it will be published and 
reported along with what the 
staff has already obtained. Ac- 
cording to reports, the focal 
point of this concern is West 
Rapides Hall, one wing of the 
new men's dorm on the campus. 




Wagnalls ! Actually, it has nothing whatsoever to do with this col- 
umn... I just wanted a classy opener. Now then, about fashion. 
I can hardly remember a Fall when there's been such a wide selec- 
tion of good looking men's wear. New styles, new colors and fabrics 
...there's something for everyone, with plenty of room for indi- 
viduality. First off, let's consider color. Current and choice for Fall 
are the new... 

HARVEST COLORS — warm browns, sunlit greens, livelier blues 
and golden wheat. These are not single, specific colors ; rather, a 
group of warm autumnal tones — each made more vibrant by an 
underlying "sunlit" cast. Greens are clearer, bearing no relation- 
ship to the olive range; blues are seen in brighter, intermediate 
tones; browns range from rich bronze to russet; and golden wheat 
livens up the beige/ tan shades. Look for these Harvest Colors in 
all types of tailored apparel, including... 

THE COUNTRY SUIT, which comes to campus 
with a POW! Bold, colorful plaids and over- 
plaids emphasize the casual aspect of these new 
suits, while the smoother finish of the worsted, 
cheviot or saxony fabrics allows for more flexi- 
bility in where they can be worn. Available in 
either two or three-button models, this suit 
makes unmistakable impact — particularly when 
worn with matching vest. 

THE POWER OF PLAID is also seen in the re- 
turn of authentic clan tartans in sportswear. 
Slacks, shirts, ties, jackets — all will be bearing 
the stamp of MacDonald, Munro, Royal Stew- 
art. Try the slacks with a solid color blazer. Or 
a red tartan jacket... just the thing for your 
next fling, Highland or otherwise. 

DONEGAL TWEEDS are back, too, and one can't help wondering 
why the long hiatus. This classic fabric — a sturdy woolen flecked 
with multi-colored nubs — looks mighty handsome on its own, or 
mix it with any patterns you like since it has an over-all solid color 
look. Harvest Wheat is particularly suited to this tweed, affording 
a warm neutral background for all sorts of color accents. 


strong this Fall, as is evidenced by the extraor- 
dinary selection available. One idea we like — 
the bulky knit pullover with an extra-high cuff 
at the neck... enough to be adjustable, depend- 
ing on the depth of the turn-over. Intricate 
vertical cables and stylized variations of fisher- 
men's knits add textured, dimensional interest 
to many of these sweaters. There's plenty of 
opportunity for individuality, so forget the 
over-worked white turtleneck "with navy blue 
blazer. You're college men... not U-boat com- 

MATCHED SHIRTS AND TIES make fashion news in bold woven 
patterns of checks and plaids. The fabrics range from medium- 
weight cottons to lightweight woolen blends, and the rugged good 
looks of this combination make it equally acceptable with or with- 
out a jacket. However, it does make a perfect partner for the solid 
color blazer or one of those antiqued leather jackets that are so 
popular right now. 

SHAPE UP is our parting word for this month. With more and 
more fitted apparel making the scene, it behooves us all to watch 
the waistline: And believe me, it's one heck of a lot easier when 
you're college age ... I know, the hard way !

State Fair Is 

Students drifted, stumbled and 
somehow found their way back to 
classes Monday morning after 
the exhausting festivities of Tech 

Most had fully recovered from 
the shock the Demon's heart- 
breaking defeat Saturday night 
at the hands of the Louisiana 
Tech Bulldogs. 

Enthusiastic students had 
maintained a high spirit through- 
out the entire week preeeeding 
the game and right up to the 
final seconds. Even the coolest 
of Demon supporters was momen- 
tarily brought low, however, as 
the Bulldogs rode to victory on 
a long Terry Bradshaw pass dur- 
ing the last 25 seconds of the 

Weekend festivities may be 
said to have started off with a 
bang on Friday with the blunder- 
ing effort of one Demon supporter 
to "bomb" the Louisiana Tech 
campus in Ruston with "Wreck 
Tech'' stickers. The confused 
pilot bombed prematurely and 
students at Grambling College, 
near Tech, received the benefit 
of hundreds of the colorful

12 Associates 
Picked by SGA 

Parade, Letters, Jukebox In 
Student Union Also Discussed 

FRESHMAN ASSOCIATES — The SGA selected 12 freshman associates at its Monday night meeting. Those 
selected were, seated, left to right, Sherry Brashear, Christina Conine, Lynn Killen, Joyce Craft, and 
Ellen Fontenot, standing, left to right, Brent Gros, Tommy McCullough, Bonnie Martin, Cynthia Riser, 
Debbie Singletary and Wanda Stoma. Ira Gamble the other associate is not ^pictured. 

SGA To Bring Paul Anka Show 
To Prather Coliseum Thursday 

"The Kid" would make an ap- 
propriate title for a Broadway 
play, a best selling novel, or a 
movie, but in today's world of 
music and show business, the 
title is recognized as the affec- 
tionate nickname given by Frank 
Siaatra to Paul Anka, who will 
appear Thursday night, at 8 p.m. 
in Prather Coliseum. 

Already a legend in a little 
more than a decade, Paul Anka 
is one of the top eight most re- 
quested nightclub performers in, 
not only the United States, but 
in Europe as well. 

Today, at the age of 27, Paul 
Anka reached the pinnacle of 
success, that very few people in 
the world of show business have 
attained, in that he will only work 
seven months out of the year. 
The remainder of the time he 
spends abroad with his family. 

It was a mere twelve years 
ago that young Paul Anka wrote 
and recorded the nine-million 
selling record, "Diana". He has 
been honored with 18 Gold Rec- 
ords, from two record compan- 
ies, with each record represent- 
ing over one-million copies of 
each sold throughout the world. 
Almost all of Paul Anka's songs 
have been written by Paul him- 
self, and which he has recorded 
in five languages. 

Among his many compositions 
are "Lonly Boy" v "Put' Your 
Head On My Shoulder", "Time 
To Cry", "Crazy Love", "You Are 
My Destiny", "Eso Beso", "All 
Of A Sudden", and "Can't Get 
You Out Of My Mind". Paul An- 
ka has composed over 300 songs 
and many other of the top sing- 
ers today enjoy success with re- 
cordings of his songs. 

Eight years ago, Paul Anka 
made his nightclub debute in 
New York's Copacabana and he 
has continued to climb ever since. 
From Miami Beach's famed Fon- 
tainebleau, where he and Frank 
Sinatra are the only two perform- 
ers to entertain twice a year, to 
the Olympia Theatre in Paris, 
to El San Juan in Puerto Rico, 
to Americana in New York, and 
twenty countries in between, 
Paul Anka is praised and admir- 
ed by all. 

Ottawa-born, Paul Ainka was 
the first popular entertainer to 
perform behind Poland's Iron 
Curtain, at the special invitation 
1964, Paul Anka accepted anoth- 
er invitation, this time to appear 
at the San Remo Music Festival 
in Italy. The song "Ogni Volti", 
which he sang at the festival 
(See Paul Anka, page 8) 

Twelve freshman associates 
were named by the Student Gov- 
ernment Association in the main 
order of business Monday night. 

In other business the SGA dis- 
cussed the possibility of staging 
a homecoming parade, received 
news from food and services com- 
mittee chairman Bruce Kevil that 
a $10 checking system had been 
established with the college book- 
store and that Mr. McCain was 
agreeable to placing a jukebox in 
the student union, and voted to 
send letters of appreciation and 
encouragement to the Demon foot- 
ball team and NSC Olympian 
Richard Loyd. 

After firing questions such as 
"What do you think can be done 
to improve SGA?", and "What do 
you think is the main problem 
confronting the SGA which it has 
to solve?", at the 27 applicates 
for associate positions the SGA 
voted to up the number from the 
standard 10 selected in the past. 

Lynn Killen of Bossier City 
received the most votes in the 
election and thereby became 
chairman of the group. 

Other freshmen selected for 
associate positions were Ellen 
Fontenot, Golden Meadow; Tom- 
my McCullough, Mansfield; Don- 
nie Martin, Ashland; Sherry Bras- 
hear, Baker; Christina Conine, 
Natchitoches; Debbie Singletary, 
Bogalusa; Wanda Stoma, Mans- 
field; Brent Gros, Zachary; Cyn- 
thia Riser, Castor; Joyce Craft, 
Shreveport, and Ira Gamble of 

Kevil, in announcing the check- 
ing agreement with the bookstore, 
expressed the hope that it was 
the start of bigger and better 
things to come. 

Kevil said that McCain was wil- 
ling to have the jukebox in the 
student union if a majority of the 
students voiced a desire to that 

The SGA passed a motion which 
called for the sending of a letter 
of appreciation to the football 
team, thanking them for their 
tremendous effort in the Louisi- 
ana Tech game. 

Senior representative Bob Nida 
moved that the group send a 
letter of encouragement to gym- 
nast Loyd, who is in Mexico City 
competing for the American team 
in the Olympics. 

School Spirit committee chair- 
man Garland Riddle brought up 
the matter of a parade for home- 
coming. Discussion on the matter 
centered upon whether or not the 
parade would be held too close to 
the date of the Christmas Festi- 
val parade. The matter was tabled 
until next week's meeting. 

In earlier business new SGA 
representatives Val Marmillion, 
Steve Bonnin, Donna Battle, The- 
resa Lombardino, Bill Fowler and 
Scotty Maxwell were sworn into 
office by advisor Dean Dudley

The Independent Spirit 

As one views a football game in Demon Stadium, he is 
confronted by a remarkable sight, student body segregated 
into two parts, Fraternities and Independents. 

The Fraternities are made to sit on rough wooden stands 
opposite the large stands. Cast in to satisfy them with this 
dismemberment is the band, the cheerleaders, the pom pom 
girls and the Mademoiselles: all those groups responsible for 
school spirit. 

This polyglot uncomfortable group of supporters thus 
finds itself responsible for the spirit and yelling for the entire 
student body (a large burden to be borne by such a small 

Opposite this group is the bulk of the Demon support. 
Composing this group is the largest part of the student body, 
which sits in the less favorable seats, and people from the 
surrounding area who sit in the center of the stadium in plush 
seats having the best views. 

The question might well be asked by the Independents, 
"Why have we been left out of school spirit?" 

Or by the Fraternity members, "Why are we over in the 
wooden stands?" 

Or by the football team which needs the ultimate 
support, "Why can't we do things a better way." 

These questions are directed to the Student Government 
and especially to the School Spirit Committee, as well as the 
administration of the college, the football coaching staff, 
and all others who might in some way be able to do something 
about this mishap. 

It is true that plans are pending concerning the 
construction of a large addition to Demon Stadium, but what 
about now. 

A Gritty Affair 

by James Walker 

The 82 yard bomb Terry Bradshaw dropped on the 
Demons in the final 25 seconds last Saturday night was the 
kind of play that could cost much more than the loss of one 
game. Teams have been ruined for the season by just such 
plays. When a team and student body works itself into such 
an emotional frame of mind, a loss of any kind is going to 
hurt, but the loss comes in the heart-breaking manner in 
which the Demons went down, sometimes there is just no 
getting back up. 

The Demons had "Wrecked Tech" for some 59 minutes 
and35 seconds, granted the Tech offense might have wrecked 
them a bit too. But there they were in the biggest game of 
the year (no matter what anyone says, the State Fair game is 
the biggest game of any year for the Demons) leading 39-35. 
This was somethingthe team and the student body had been 
looking forward to for a year. It would be the first time the 
Demons had ever taken three in a row from the people 
from Ruston. Chants of "We've wrecked Tech", had already 
begun and life was just grand for Northwesterners. Or so 
we thought. 

Bradshaw's Bomb has been cussed and discussed dozens 
of times, so we won't go into that here. What does worry us a 
bit though is the question, "What Now?" 

Do we give up on the rest of the season just because we 
lost a heart-breaker in the key game of the season, or do 
begin picking up the pieces and resume the march toward 
that GSC championship, we envisioned so plainly just a 
week ago. 

Notice the first person, plural was used in asking that 
question. Yes the students will have to make their comeback 
too. The Demons are going to need all the moral support the 
student body can muster for them now. Their pride has been 
damaged, their confidence shaken a little. It will be a little 
while before that pride is repaired, before that confidence is 
regained. A good understandable "we'll get'em next time,, 
attitude would go a long way in restoring these two important 

After all the Demons have beaten the team generally 
considered to be the best all around in the GSC. As stated 
before they had the best offensive team in the conference 
beaten for 59 minutes 35 seconds. 

As the old saying goes "we've got a tough row to hoe", 
but not so tough that it can't be done. Every team in the GSC 
has at least one loss, except for Southwestern. You, I and 
everyone else knows Southwestern in going to lose at least 
one. And when that happens, bingo, we're right back where 
we started. 

It all comes back to the question we ask earlier. Do we 
pick up the pieces and go on for the championship, or do 
we just play out the schedule. The GSC championship is still 
on the line, just there for the taking. Do you want it Demons? 
Do you want it student body? 




Dear Editor: 

With regard to conservatism 
and Southerners, what can pos- 
sibly be wrong? The average 
Southerner does not demonstr- 
ate; rather, he is demonstrated 
against. He is descriminating, but 
who in his right mind isn't? And 
for the heart-broken multitudes 
of the hairy, unwashed, sloppy, 
barbarians cluttering up the 
landscape, why shouldn't "con- 
servative" Southerners demand 
and get the proper degree of 
conformity to the social mores 
of this country, the South! 

No apologies for this viewpoint 
are necessary. If barbarians (i.e., 
hippies, yippies, the SDS, tomato 
pinkies, etc.) don't like the South 
and what the majority of Souther- 
ners want, why, there are thirty- 
nine other States which they can 
clutter up. 

As for our politics, society, 
economics, and intellect, these 
satisfy us. Should the minority 
which equates long hair with in- 
tellect and sophistication be un- 
happy with the South as it is, let 
'em go nuts with their pious frus- 

Thank you, 

Bobby Cullin

From the unpremeditated bombing of Grambling Col- 
lege to the final tear after Bradshaw's deadlt pass, Tech 
weekend was a fiasco. 

The Student Government Association was the first to 
feel the general confusion as they tried to secure convertibles 
which were already taken by Louisiana Tech. The problem 
only found a solution when it was left in the able hands of 
Mayor Fant of Shreveport. 

Mayor Fant unwittingly drifted deeper into the general 
confusion when Luther Horton, Tech Student Government 
President, came to his office to say that his school could 
only afford cookies for a reception of dignitaries which was 
to take place before the game. Tech was rescued by Mayor 
Fant who had the affair catered himself. 

In the midst of the general confusion, a bulletin ran 
over national wire services that Grambling College had been 
bombed with leaflets bearing the inscription, "Wreck Tech." 
News announcers smirked Friday evening as they expressed 
hope that the NSC quarterback was more accurate than those 
who sought to litter the Tech Campus. 

Later came the pre-game ceremonies when members of 
the State Fair Court were called out in the wrong order. 

If this weren't enough, the NSC State Fair Queen who 
came to the game replete in crown and gown had to buy a 
ticket at the gate, and Student Body President, Henry Burns 
was not allowed to go to his car to get the Tech-Northwest- 
ern banner, his way blocked by guards. 

The hostile guards stood in the way of any who sought 
to leave, defeating the purpose of ticket stubs with orders 
from the home team which was Tech. 

In spite of the loss, one might well ask, "Why weren't 
things done right?"

Wallace Chosen 
In Mock Election 

American. Independent Party 
candidate George Wallace was 
named by College students in a 
mock election this week as their 
choice for president of th United 

In day-long balloting con- 
ducted in the Student Union, 
Wallace defeated Republican 
Nixon for the top spot, and 
Democratic candidate Hubert 
Humphrey finished a distant 

Wallace received a total of 
595 votes in the mock election 
to 477 for Nixon. Humphrey re-

The total for Wallace amounted 
to 50.9 percent of the total votes 
cast. Nixon had 40.8 percent of 
the votes, and Humphrey re- 
ceived 8.3 percent. 

A total of 1,169 students voted 
in the election. The Political 
Science Club at Northwestern,

was pleased with the turnout 
at the polls, pointing out that 
the number of voters represent- 
ed more than one-third of the on- 
campus population at the college.

Campus Beauty 
To Be Selected 

Some of the college's most 
beautiful and outstanding coeds 
will vie next week for the title 
of Lady of the Bracelet. Nomina- 
tions have already been secured 
from the dormitories send pre- 
liminaries are one tap for Thurs- 

The winner of the title is chos- 
en by a panel of judges who look 
for poise, beauty, personality, 
and talent — all the factors which 
make up the ideal campus beauty. 

Among the girls who have won 
this highly coveted title in the 
past is Mrs. Tommy Keys, for- 
merly Pam Rushing of Natchito- 
ches, who received the title in 
1967. She is now teaching in the 
math department. 

Last year's Lady of the Brace- 
let, Marcie Fowler, is also from 
Natchitoches and is majoring in 
elementary education. In addi- 
tion to this honor, Marcie served 
during the past week as State 
Fair Queen 

As Lady of the Bracelet, this 
year's wiinner will reign over 
campus social functions for the 
remainder of the year and will 
represent the college in such 
beauty pageants as "Miss Holiday 
in Dixie." 

After the preliminaries, the 
formal pageant will take place 
with Wayne Meachum acting as 
master of ceremonies. The whole 
contest is conducted ran the pat- 
tern of the Miss America Pageant 
which has traditionally been the 
most popular in the nation. 

Girl Scouts Plan 
Fall Activities 

Activities for the semester were 
planned at the first meeting of 
the Campus Girl Scouts on Wed- 
nesday, October 23. 

The meeting, which was held 
from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Cald- 
well 21 1A, was open to all wo- 
men students who are interested 
in scouting. Previous scouting is 
not required for membership in 
the organization, and special ac- 
tivities for girls who haven't been 
scouts are being planned. A lead- 
ership training course is also be- 
ing discussed. 

The Campus Girl Scouts include 
both service and fun in their 
list of "things to come" this se- 
mester. Advising Girl Scout 
Troops in Natchitoches is just 
one of their many activities. Fern 
Christensen of the secondary 
Education Department serves as 
sponsor for the group.

College Choice 

University students wishing 
to transfer next fall will find 
their task easier this time than 
when they were high school sen- 
iors attempting to choose four or 
five prospective colleges. 

Harcourt, Brace and World 
Inc., has introduced a computer 
system to aid students in the 
selection of colleges and univer- 
sities. The program, SELECT, 
was created by two seniors at the 
Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 

The program, which is aimed 
at high school seniors and col- 
lege students wishing to transfer, 
determines the 10 to 15 schools 
in the country which best match 
a student's interests, aptitudes, 
and financial requirments. The 
student's specfications are com- 
pared with over two million data 
entries on approximately 3,000 
colleges and universities in the 
United States. 

William Jovanovich, president 

Chitty. Chitty. 
Discount Card? 

of Harcourt, Brace and World, 
noted that students will general- 
ly consider only a few colleges 
When contemplating matricula- 
tion or transfer, usually those 
familiar to him through family 
and friends. The purpose of SEL- 
ECT is to aid guidance coun- 
selors and the student himself in 
determining all possibilities com- 
patible with the student's needs 
and potential. 

The SELECT questionable 
seeks such academic information 
as college entrance test scores, 
school rank, and course interests. 
Such areas as social activity, 
sports, reasons for attending col- 
lege, and career intentions are 
also considered in selecting the 
best possibities for the student. 

SELECT questionnaires are 
available to university students 
from guidance counselors at all 
Madison high schools, and can be 
obtained by writing to SELECT, 
Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc., 
757 Third Avenue, New York, 
New York 10017. The cost to ap- 
plicants is $15. The names of the 
10 to 15 institutions which best 
suit his individual needs are sent 
in a personalized computer let- 
ter within two weeks after filing 
the questionnaire.

Gulf States Conference gridders 
are staging an all-out assault on 
the record book this season and 
the latest to challenge the record 
book is Jim Barton of the Univer- 
sity of Southwestern Louisiana. 

Barton's five touchddowns Sat- 
urday night against Delta State 
and his 30 points scored set two 
new GSC marks. The old records 
were four touchdowns and 24 
points by Jules DeRouen of Mc- 
Neese State set back in 1952. 

Bartcm scored four touchdowns 
rushing and one on a 67-yard pass 

reception from quarterback Geo- 
rge Roussel. The pass competion 
touchdown was scored in the fin- 
al two minutes and gave USL 
their 32-27 victory. 

Louisiana Tech's brilliant pass- 
er, Terry Bradshaw, continues to 
pace the loop in total offense 
withl294 yards and in passing 
with 82 completions in 159 at- 
tempts for 1330 yards aind nine 

However, Northwestern's Don 
Guidry, runner-up in passing has 
pitched the most touchdowns, 11.

"Probably the hardest aspect 
of distance runnig is getting 
the mind in ccindition. Once the 
body is in shape it remains for 
the individual to make himself 
mentally ready." 

These are the words of junior 
trackster Paul Trueman who has 
handily won the first three cross 
country meets of the season. 
Trueman took top honors against 
Northeast in the first meet with 
a time of 14:39 for the 3.1 mile 
course. In the second outing the 
distance ace outran runners from 
Southeastern and LSU with a 
time of 14:08on a three mile 
course, in Hammond, Louisiana. 
On Friday October 15, Trueman 
outdid the Northeast Tribe again 
on the 3.8 mile home course. 

The three year Army veteran 
sat out most of last year with a 
leg injury. He began working out 
during the summer and is in now 

what he considers the best shape 

Trueman's workout usually 
consists of running eight miles 
in the morning and 12 miles in 
the afternoon. This will vary 
depending on how he feels for 
that particular day and what he 
considers he should do to condi- 
tion himself. Trueman has been 
given a free rein on his training 
program and right now he runs 
every day including the day be- 
fore the meets. Trueman will 
work out a different schedule 
for conference action. 

Trueman expressed that relax- 
ation was the key to distance suc- 
cess thrown in with dedication 
and hard work. 

As far as conference competi- 
tion, Trueman has only been 
beaten timewise by Richard 
Brown from Northeast. Brown 
will probably be his toughest

Bradshaw Sinks Demons in Final 25 Seconds 

by David Miller 

The thrill of victory and the 
agony of defeat were both felt 
in the final seconds of the North- 
western-Tech football game play- 
ed at State Fair Stadium Satur- 
day night. The magnificient play 
put forth by the Demons was all 
in fain as La. Tech's last all out 
effort proved fatal when Terry 
Bradshaw let fly with the inevi- 
table, a long bomb, to Ken Lib- 
erto for a 82 yard touchdown 
pass with only 25 seconds left 
on the clock. 

A crowd of nearly 28,000 fans 
watched as the Demons and Bull- 
dogs slugged it out for the 53rd 
time since the rugged series 
started in 1907. If there are any 
old timers around that saw all 
the games, they would surely 
have to admit that this game 
was the most spectacular of them 

The game was give and take 
all the way by both teams with 
Tech drawing first blood half 
way through the first period with 
a 2 yard plunge by Buster Her- 
ren. The Demons retaliated by 
pushing quarterback Terry Brad- 
shaw back into his own end zone 
for a saftey. Then when the Bull- 
dogs kicked off, halfback Vic 
Nyvall snatched the football on 
his own 22 and carried it back 
executing a beautiful 78 yard 
return for the Demons first 
touchdown of the game. Rusty 
James made the PAT and at the 
end of the period it was the 
Demons 9, Bulldogs 7. 

In the second act it was the 
Purple and White all the way 
with the Demon defense crack- 
ing down on the powerful Brad- 
shaw and his talented recievers, 
keeping the Dogs to only 7 points 
in the half. While the defense 
was doing its job, the Demon 
"movers" were not idle either.

ed with end Al Phillips for a 
13 yard touchdown pass with on- 
ly seconds left to give North- 
western a comfortable 19-7 lead 
at the break. 

Early in the 3rd quarter the 
Bulldogs came alive as Bradshaw 
teamed up with Larry Brewer for 
a 7 yard TD pass with 12:20 on 
the clock. As if on cue the De- 
mons came back with Tom Wal- 
lis going over from the 2 to make 
it 26-14. And then the Techsters 
rallied with two touchdowns in 
a row and for the first time 
since early in the initial period 
the Dogs were ahead. But just 
like it was meant to be the 
mighty Demons put together a 
75 yard drive that ended with 
Phillips accepting a 29 yard flip 
from Guidry for their fourth 
touchdown of the game. The 
score at the end of the period 
was NSC 33, Tech 28. 

By the time the "staggered" 
fans didn't know who to pick 
to come out on top. It looked as 

if the Demons were destined to 
win over the Bulldogs, but the 
game wasn't over yet. 

Louisiana Tech took over again 
with 11:41 left in the game as 
Bradshaw dove from the 1 to 
make it 35-33. Things looked a 
little dim for the Purple and 
White for a while as the ball 
exchanged hands twice before the 
Demons came through like true 
champs. After a 78 yard drive 
it was again the Guidry-Phillips 
duo that put tht Demons back 
in the lead with only 5:15 left. 

After the Bulldogs resumed 
possession of the ball it looked 
as if a hero was made and the 
game was over when safety John 
Boogaerts intercepted a Brad- 
shaw pass with only seconds left. 
Northwestern controlled the pig- 
skin for four short plays and 
then gave it up with Larry Smith 
booting it to the Bulldogs' own 
18-yard line with 25 seconds on 
the clock. 

It appeared that the previous

Demons Suffer Numerous Injuries 
For After Effect of Last Week's Defeat 

When the Demons met La. 
Tech last week they not only 
lost the heartbreaking game but 
also some valuble talent in the 
form of injuries. 

Vic Nyvall, starting right half- 
back, was the victim of his se- 
cond shoulder dislocation of the 
season. Nyvall reinjured his left 
shoulder in the second quarter 
of the Tech game and his situa- 
tion concerning the rest of the 
season is in doubt. He has been 
under the attention of a special- 
ist and his condition is 
termed as questionable. Coach 
Glenn Gossett said that Nyvall 
would probably either play in the 
next game or be out for the ten- 
ure of the year. 

Tough Tony Papa concurred a 
slight twisted knee in the last 
quarter against Tech to go along 
with a painful hip pointer that 
he got in the Cameron State 
game. Papa is responding to 
treatment and the coaches ex- 
pressed that his knee should be 
healed and the hip pointer well 
rested after the long layoff. 
Brodnax on Crutches 

Probably the backbone of the 
offensive line, center Randy 
Brodnax sprained his right knee 
and has been on crutches the en- 

tire week. Gossett was concerned 
over the fact that the knee does 
not look good at this point 
and Brodnax may be out for an 
undertermined amount of time. 

Middle guard Wayne Estay 
sustained a broken finger in the 
Tech game but he is expected to 
play with the finger either taped 
or in a cast. 

Randy Tate, who holds down 
the defensive spot, is still suf- 
fering from a dislocated elbow 
but is expected to be ready for 
action after the open dates. Tate 
has been playing, but has been 
hampered by the injury. 
... Watts, Gilson Out for Season ... 

Two members of the second 
string backfield, Gil Gilson and 
Marion Watts, are not slated to 
see any action for the rest of 
the year because of knee pro- 
blems. Halfback Gilson was in- 
jured in the Tennessee Tech game 
and hasn't responded to treat- 
ment for the knee. Gossett thinks 
that ligaments were pulled in 
Gilson's knee and he is not en- 
thusiastic over the chances of 
either Gilson or Watts of seeing 
any more playing time. Watts has 
been hampered by injuries 
throughout the year and he has 
ligament or cartilage problems.

had paid off, but the dazzled 
Demons slacked a little too soon. 
The Bulldogs were still very 
much in the ball game with the 
powerful Bradshaw calling the 
shot. And as everyone had wit- 
nessed throughout the contest, 
Bradshaw was capable of a mir- 
acle. With Ken Liberto running 
as if it were for his life, Brad- 
shaw let fly a fabulous pass that 
ended up in what looked like 
the hands of defensive safety 
Ken Hrapmann, but when the 
dust had cleared it was Liberto 
scampering 82 yards for the long 
touchdown "bomb." Richie Gol- 
mon kicking the PAT with 13 
small seconds left gave Tech a 
42-39 edge. Three plays later the 
game was over. 

Although it had been several 
minutes since the "bomb," the 
Demon side of the stadium re- 
mained quiet atnd still. It was 
a sight to draw sniffles from any- 

The Bulldogs rolled up 523 
yards total offense with Brad- 
shaw connecting on 13 of 29 
pas attempts for 258 yards. The 
Demons accounted for 372 yards 
total offense with Guidry com- 
pleting nine passes for 196 yards. 

The win was Tech's first in 
the GSC race this year giving 
the Bulldogs a 1-2 Conference 
record and a 3-2 overall slate. It 
was the Demons' second loss of 
the season but first in conference 
play giving them a 4-2 overall 
and a 1-1 GSC recording.

Louisiana Room Has 
Large Collection 

The largest collection of pub- 
lished material on Louisiana in 
the state, north of Baton Rouge 
is located at Northwestern State 
College, Natchitoches. 

Some 8,000 catalogued books 
are located in the Louisiana 
Room, but this isn't all by any 
means. Also on hand are some 
10,000 Louisiana State docu- 
ments, 5,000 reels of microfilms 
of Louisiana newspapers, maga- 
zines and books and many maps 
and photographs of early Louisi- 
ana maps. 

The Louisiana Room is located 
in room 401 of the Arts and 
Sciences building arjd is well 
equipped to handle the reading 
needs of all NSC students. 

Miss Katherine Bridges, lib- 
rarian in charge, explained re- 
cently that the Louisiana Room 
outgrew its quarters in Russell 

Library and it was re-located last 
July in the new classroom build- 
ing. Service was never stopped 
during the move. 

Literature about Louisiana, 
or written by people of the state, 
is shelved in the Louisiana Room. 
All types of writings are included: 
inovels, biographies, histories, 
cook books, magazines, newspap- 
ers, pamphlets, etc. 

On microfilm are letters and 
manuscripts written long ago by 
families of Louisiana. Historians 
come from long distances to 
study material of years ago. 

Rare books and very old ones 
are shelved in a separate part of 
the Louisiana Room. They may be 
examined only under very close 
supervision, because of their 
frailty and value. 

Open hours for the Louisiana 
Room are: Monday-Friday, 9-12, 
1-4:30 and Saturday 9-12.

Fraternities Display Spirit In Skreveport 

Plans Are Made 
For Homecoming 

Greek plans now moved toward 
Homecoming. Each sorority and 
fraternity usually hold an open 
house and set up individual dis- 
plays which are judged and a- 
warded cash prizes. 

The homecoming game is the 
most eventful next to the state 
fair game. The game is played in 
the afternoon and dances are 
planned for evening entertin- 

Each Greek group, and each 
dorm, choose a committee to 
plan and create a display. Last 
year, Delta Zeta won the award 
for their display which consisted 
of telephones made of wire and 
decorated with pink and green 
crepe paper and a slogan which 
was approprite for their theme. 

Most of the sororities have a 
slumber party following the 
Saturday nite dances. Girls re- 
port to their sorority houses at 
1 a.m., just as if they were sign- 
ing in the dorm. Chaperones ac- 
cepted by Dean Hendricks make 
sure fraternity boys don't try to 
crash the slumber parties. Pledg- 
es of groups such as Sigma Kap- 
pa find out who their big sisters 
are and exchange gifts. The girls 
are given a chnce to look deeper 
into their sorority and its social 
life. Girls leave their greek hous- 
es around 6 Sunday morning and 
them prepare for an outing with 
elude a picnic, church, or a ban- 

Sunday afternoon or evening, 
the groups again assemble to dis- 
mantle their displays. House- 
cleaning hours usually follow. 

Representatives from every 
Greek group on campus trailed 
the demons to Shreveport this 
past week-end to watch the an- 
nual State Fair classic. From pep 
rallies to parades to personal 
harrassment of Tech supporters 
sororities left no doubt as to who 
they supported. Banners and 
flags bearing the Greek names 
swung proudly at the big pep 
rally at tht courthouse in Shreve- 
port Saturday and again at the 
ballgame Saturday night. 

Chants of "Wreck Tech", 
"Here Puppy", "Get your flea 
powder here", and "Popcorn, 
peanuts, Tech button-get'im 
while they're hot" surrounded 
the courthouse square as demon 
fans cheered and jeered in the 
usual State Fair fashion. 

Even after the heartbreaking 
loss, partying still prevailed into 
the Early Sunday morning hours. 
Tau Kappa Epsilon held their 
final party of the weekend at 
the 40 & 8 Club on Cross lake.

distributed to the groups which 
show originality, wit, hard work, 
and proper themes. Kappa Sig- 
ma Fraternity rates an honorable 
mention for their display last 
year. It consisted of a ship and 
moving waves. "Pledge-power," 
kept the water rolling. 

Greek spirit is still very much 
alive after this past week-end.

Greek school sprit has been a 
major subject of talk with stud- 
ents on campus and the adminis- 
tration. The type of enthusiasm 
displayed this year is is indeed a 
tribute to those members of the 
social organizations. In every 
group you see at the pep rallies

and usually many more than one.

ed by the band.

Antebellum Columns 
Symbolize Heritage 

Friday, October 25, 1968 

Three of the original four white 
ivy covered columns now stand- 
ing in front of Caldwell Hall 
on the site of the Old Bullard 
Mansion are symbolic of the ear- 
ly history of the college. 

These masonry columns are 
all that remains of the beautiful 
home of Charles A. Bullard and 
his wife, Julia Ann Bludworth 

Built in the 1830's the Bullard 
Mansion was destined to become 
the center about which a great 
educational institution would 
grow. The mansion, an old plan- 
tation home, was of the typical 
colonial style with a broad porch 
running across the front of the 
ground floor. 

In 1856, the mansion and 107 
acres composing the Bludworth 
Hill Area were sold for $42,000 
to the Society of the Sacred 
Heart for the purpose of estab- 
lishing a boarding school for 

Nuns built a convent building 
in 1857, which was architectural- 
ly similarly to the old mansion. 
The townspeople bought the old 
convent building and grounds for 
$6,000 in 1884 and immediately 
donated the land to the state 
for the establishment of the State 
Normal School. 

In 1904, when the old convent 
building was torn down, the four 
columns were left standing for 
decoration for the school campus. 

The fourth of the original 
columns was removed in 1937 be- 
cause it was leaning and in dan- 
ger of .falling. 

The ivy which at one time ad- 
ded much to their beauty was 
brought here by Bessie Russell 
of Mount Vernon. Now the ivy has 

been removed due to rat infesta- 

After 84 historic years, the 
three stately columns still stand, 
symbolizing the past and future 
of the college. Sybil Moore, stu- 
dent of Normal in 1917, wrote 
the following poem about the 
four columns. Her poem was 
published in 1917 by the "Pot- 

The Columns 

The stately columns on the Hill 
In brooding moonlight gleam 
like pearl; 
In winter they are chaste and still 
In summer round them vines 

In Times of old, I've heard it 

The columns graced a home 
so fair; 
And later sacred duty had 
To Beautify a convent there. 

Their tryst they kept, e'en as the 

And Time, their father, them 

For still not one its beauty shuns 
But oft some smiling thought 

And man by vines, for beauty 

Has helped fulfill the columns 

Of giving forth ere they've 

And whispering through the 
leaves their voice. 

The columns stand upon the Hill 
A group of four where birds 
do nest; 

In winter they are chaste and stil; 
But wake in spring in ivy drest. 

Blue Key Fraternity 
In 10th Year At NSC 

The Blue Key National Honor 
Fraternity has been serving the 
college for almost ten years. The 
organization, which was establish- 
ed in 1959, is the most significant 
honor that can be given to a 
man on campus. 

In order to qualify for member- 
ship, a male student must have 
attained a 2.5 grade average and 
have reached junior or senior 
classification. He must also be a 
member of two organizations and 
an officer in one of these. After 
the candidate has met these quali- 
fications, he must be approved 
and acepted by other members of 
the organization. 

President of the fraternity is 
Charles Charrier, a senior So- 
cial Sciences major from Borde- 
lonville. Serving as Vice-Presi- 
dent is Danny Bob Turner, a 
former Ail-American baseball 
player and Physical Education 
major from Shreveport. 

Among the activities of the or- 
ganization is sponsoring the an- 
nual cheerleader camp in the 
summer semester, assitsing in the 
registration process, working in 
the press box in fotball games, 
collecting tickets in the SGA big 
name entertainment series, and 
being available to help anyone 
who needs assistance. 

This year the organization is 
planning several special pro- 
jects, one of which is conducting 
a carnival for the youngsters at 
the Masonic Children's Home at 

Dean of Students, Dudly G. 
Fulton, was behind the original 
founding of the organization in 
1959. The first meeting was held 
on May 25, 1959 when selected 
students met to discuss a possible 
affiliation with the national 
honor fraternity. 

After contacts were made with 
the national organization, the 
local colony was set up under 
the title Blue Feather. The sym- 
bol of the local organization was 
the white caps they wore. Stick- 
ing out of the cap was the signal 
blue feather. 

The first president of the 
organization was Eugene Scott. 
Michael Murphy first served the 
group as Secretary. 

On October 8, 1959, a letter was 
received from the national organ- 
ization. It stated that the votes of 
chapters all over the nation had 
been tallied and were in favor of 
approving the establishing of a 
chapter on this campus. After 
this, the name BLUE KEY was 
here to stay. 

In 1960, Dean Leonard O. 
Nichols was approved as chapter 
advisor and has been serving the 
organization and the college ever 

Present members of the organ- 
ization are : Henry Burns, Charles 
Charrier, Bill Fowler, Charles 
Skinner, Roger Hammons, Wayne 
Horn, Donald Mayeaux, Ronald 
Mayeaux, Robin Sills, Danny Bob 
Turner, Milton Rhea, Dennis New- 
bury, Larry McCollum, Tandy

Rhodes, Don Durham, Tony Ris- 
poli, William Allbritten, Eric 
Bienvenue, Robert Anglin, Jack 
Stegman, Winston Bolinger, Barry 
Barr, and James Jeansonne. 

New members are chosen in 
the spring of each year. Due to 
the selective nature of the organ- 
ization, it is seldom that more 
than fifteen members are select-

The daughter of Prince Kretu-

an orphanage in England by her 
father. After escaping from Ro-

France about life behind the Iron 

She came to the United States 
in 1955 and has spoken in all 50 
states and Canada about condi- 
tions in Romania and other cap- 
tive nations. 

Since coming to America, she 
has contacted more than 300 
American fliers who were shot 
down over Romania during the 
second world war. While in Ro- 
mania, she was instrumental in 
the rescue of some 1,000 Ameri- 
can fliers shot down in the 
country and helped return them 
to the allied lines. 

Princess Catherine in featured 
in a non- fiction book, "Ploesti" 
by James Dugan and Carroll

The Cashier's Office has an-

paid for their room and board on 
a monthly basis need to make 
these payments immediately. 

The payments were due on

workers in the cashier's office, 
many students have not yet paid

President Explores 
Campus Problems 

Paul Anka 

Personality Is Shown 
By Anka Performance 

Paul Anka brought more than 
just a show here last night. The 
Canadian born star brought per- 
sonality to Prather Coliseum 
which has not been seen by a 
Northwestern audience in some 

After a short delay, Anka 
warmed the three-fourths full 
Coliseum crowd up with a quick 
wit and the suggestion that the 
crowd move to the stage, which 
they did. 

The current one month tour 
that Anka is now on is his first 
college swing in his 13 year care- 
er. Anka expressed that he would 
like to make about two tours a 
year of this nature. 

The 17 piece band provided 
music to several old hits. Among 
these were Dianna, Just a Lonely 
Boy, Put Your Head on My 
Shoulder, Going Out of My Head, 
Longest Day, and a release that 
has only been on the market for 
two weeks, Crazy World. 

In a short press conference 
after the show, Anka gave the 
little known fact that Dianne, 
his first big hit, was written 
about his baby sitter who he had 
fallen in love with at 14 years 
of age. 

The 27 year phenomenon swept 
the audience off its feet with his 
informal style and easy going 
way off presenting the talent 
that has made him famous. 

Anka originally studied to be 
a journalist and a lawyer but af- 
ter disinterest in the subjects, 
he turned to the field that he 
showed the most talent in. 

The attitude of the audience 
toward the great star was pleas- 
ing to Anka and his band. Anka 
said that there is a slight dif- 
ference in the receptions he re- 
ceived in the North and here. He 
said that the people in the Soutk 
had a certain intangible friendli- 
ness that other sections of the 
country did not have. It was not 
Anka's first trip to the Soutk 
and several of his band members 
are natives of the South. 

The little man with the bie 
voice was ddescribed by mem- 
bers of his band before the show 

as being very involved with his 
audience and cooperative with 
during the informal interview, 
the press. This was demonstrated 
Anka has a week and a half 
left on this current tour. The 
tour is being made between the 
filming of an Italian movie which 
Anka has a leading role in. 

When ask about the young gen- 
eration and their problems, Paul 
replied, "The problem is a lack of 
comuinication between different 
age groups. Too much is publi- 
cized about weird minority 
groups and not enough about the 
average intelligent young Amer- 

There was certainly no com- 
munication problem between 
Paul Anka and the students of 
Northwestern last night. 

by James Walker 

President Arnold Kilpatrick 
said Tuesday that the NSC ad- 
ministration would not approve 
or sanction in any way a North- 
western chapter of the Students 
for Democratic Society. 

The president made his re- 
marks at a press conference at- 
tended by Current Sauce staff 
members and Student Govern- 
ment Association officials. 

It was learned earlier in the 
week that some students were 
trying to establish a chapter of 
the SDS on campus and would 
seek approval of the chapter by 
the administration. 

Dean of Students Dudley Ful- 
ton presented the administration's 
stand on the subject when he 
told the SGA Monday night that 
"if the SDS comes on campus, 
it will be as an underground or- 

Kilpatrick reiterated the stand 
in the Tuesday press conference, 
saying that the SDS is an organi- 
zation dedicated to the over- 
throw of the existing govern- 
ment, and charged that it was a 
communist front organization. 

The SDS has been implicated 
in the riots at Columbia Univer- 
sity and the University of Cali- 
fornia at Berkely and has also 
been linked with the riots at 
the recent Democratic National 
Convention in Chicago. 

When questioned about the 
controversy surrounding the se- 
lection of Current Sauce staff 
members earlier in the semester 
Kilpatrick said that it appeared 
to him that the whole problem 
came about because there simp- 
ly were not enough people in the 
journalism department who were 
technically qualified to fill the 

When asked if he favored se- 
lection of the staff being in the 
hands of the SGA the president 
said that it wasn't a question of 
whether he favored the system or 
not because he could not and 
would not "just step in,,' to 
remedy the situation. 

"The Current Sauce is linked 
with the SGA by the constitu- 
tion, and it would take a consti- 
tutional amendment to change 
this," said Kilpatrick. 

"It would be up to the SGA 

to initiate the change if they 
thought they couldn't live with 
the situation," stated the presi- 

Moving to the question of fi- 
nances and stadium seating, 
Sauce reporters inquired into the 
possibility of improving facilities. 

Kilpatrick pointed out that this 
need has come while we are in 
the throes of a financial crisis 
and that changes will probably 
be slow. He also pointed out that 
finances are limiting our growth 
in several other important areas, 

such as increased classroom 
space and additional library and 
eating facilities. 

Complicating the urgent needs 
is the vast increase in enrollment 
of the college in the past few 
years. Kilpatrick commended NSC 
students for doing such a fine 
job of public relations and stat- 
ed that the administration would 
be hard put to cope with the 
expected enrollment for next 
near. e 
Sadly, he pointed out that NSC

Competition Narrows 
For Lady of Bracelet 

Competition for the title of 
Lady of the Bracelet was nar- 
rowed Wednesday evening as a 
panel of judges selected 20 coeds 
to vie for the college's top beauty 
award. Chosen from a field of 
50, these girls will take part in 
the final competition to be held 
in Prather Coliseum on Nov 18. 

The preliminary judging in- 
cluded some modeling by each 
of the contestants and personal 
interviews with the panel of six 
judges. The judges for this first 
step in the selection of a Lady 
of the Bracelet were Mrs. Bur- 
ton Dupuy, Dr. Marie Dunn, Myr- 
na Schexnider, Bobby DeBlieux, 
and Ben Mayeaux. 

This year, the Lady of the 
Bracelet competition is being 
sponsored by the Student Gov- 
ernment Association Entertain- 
ment Committee. Garland Riddle, 
of Leesville, is in charge of 
plans for the pageant. Cheryl 
Wood is the co-chairman and 
they will be assisted by commit- 
tee members Gary Haggart, Don- 
nie Martin, Sue Knight, Joan 
Smith, Irene Morgel, Gary Di- 
gilormo, Phyllis Brasher, Sally 
Wells, and Norma Oliver. 

Nominations for the prelimin- 
ary contest were secured by bal- 
loting on each floor of the men's 
and women's dormitories on cam- 

During the formal pageant, 
in the process of which ten final- 
ists will be selected, coeds will 
compete in swimsuit, evening 
gown and talent competition. The 
final winner of the title will 
reign over campus functions for 
the remainder of the year and 
will represent the college in such 
beauty pageants as "Miss Holiday 
in Dixie." She will also be fea- 
tured in the college yearbook, 
the Potpourri. 

Wayne Meachum of Ringgold 
will be master of ceremonies for 
the final pageant, which is con 
ducted along the lines of the Miss 
America Pageant. Last Year's 
Lady of the Bracelet, Marcie 
Fowler of Natchitoches, will al- 
so take part in the ceremonies. 

With a possible 250 points, the 
girls will be judged on the basis 
of beauty, poise, personality, and 
talent. The judges have not yet 
been selected for the final con- 

The girls who will compete in 
the final judging are: Karen Als- 
ton, Connie Babineaux, Dee Bar- 
bo, Donna Battle, Peggy Beasley, 
Marcia Bella, Cheryl Brown, 
Cindy Coker, Carolyn Erhardt, 
Sharon Hale, Phyllis Jackson, 
Theresa Lombardino, Carta Mc- 
Cain, Bonnie Martin, Susan Mu- 
rell, Velma Pylant, Patty Robin- 
son, Jo Ann Wheeler, Linda Wil- 
liams, and Brenda Wilson.

Friday, November 1, 1968 

And Prunes 

by Charles Skinner 

National concern is currently bent toward a happening 
which could significantly alter the face of the nation, the 
1968 Presidential Election. 

Facing the citizen and the politicion alike are the 
issues of starving people across the world, poverty within our 
own nation, racial issues which run to the core of our society, 
impending nuclear obliteration in the case of accidental war- 
fare, internal disorder, and creeping liberalism. 

Voters are faced with a choice between three candidates 
contending with all of the resources at their command for the 
highest office in the land. Utilizing magizines, television, 
radios, newspapers, and circulars, wiley campaign managers 
advocate one theme, " Vote for the man of your choice,Jbut 
let that man be our man." In the face of all of this propaganda 
where each candidate sees the other as spelling doom for the 
nation, it is understandable that many Americans fear all of 
the candidates. 

Before one abandons himself to the doom, however, it 
is advisable to examine the candidates individually. First, 
is Richard Milhous Nixon, called "Tricky Dickie," by many 
Democrats. Dick has been characterized by his opponents as 
moderately conservative, moderately liberal, and moderately 

Running next on the list is Hubert Horatio Humphrey. 
Humphrey, who was portrayed as something of a do-nothing 
in the office of Vice-President, has emerged from the 
Democratic primaries looking much like a devil. 

If he were elected, the nation would veritably explode 
with liberalism. Humphrey would undoubtable subsidize farm 
crops, give relief to the millions of poor in the nation, attempt 
to further our national interests with aid to foreign nations, 
and promote the civil liberties for which the democrats have 
fought so hard in the last few years. 

Finally, there is the Southern candidate, George Corley 
Wallace. Wallace has been called a baby, a reactionary, a 
stoneage personality in the Twentieth Century, a malicious 
person, and an inept administrator. If one stops to think, 
people usually reserves his most effective venom for those 
whom they fear the most. In retrospect, Wallace might make 
the least dangerous President, for with his lack of party 
'affiliation, it is doubtful that he could shove an ounce of 
legislation through Congress. 

Given the choices which face all of us as citizens, it 
stands to reason that thousands all over the nation are turning 
to the suprizing dark horses, Pat Paulsen and Alfred E. 
Newman. Pat probably has the strongest law and order policy 
of all the canidates, "Send the Negroes to Africa, the white 
men to Europe, and give the whole mess to the Indians who 
could the establish many beautiful national parks." The 
campaign of Alfred E. Newman also has an immense voter 
appeal in this age of brinkmanship, nuclear umbrellas, the 
balance of terror, and impending world war . . ."What 
me worry?" 






I was astounded when I read 
the "Letter to the Editor," in last 
week's Current Sauce, it really 
is a shame to read a letter from 
such a narrow minded individual 
who is naive enough to believe 
that he speaks to the majority of 

Now, about some of the so-call- 
ed "barbarians" that attend NSC, 
I was under the impression that 
we live in a free nation; simply 
meaning that a person can do as 
he pleases as long s he does not 
impose on the rights of others. 
Should there be someone whose 
rights have been infringed upon 
by some of our longhaired 
friends, then let the inflictors be 
punished. There is no one like 
this at our campus at this time. 
Many of these people carry high 
scholastic averages. Not being 
sarcastic, many of our clean cuts 
do not accomplish this. 

I believe that a little narrow 
mimdedness entered! the article 
last week. I am not building up 
our longhaired friends, but I 
am putting them on the same 
level as anyone else on this cam- 
pus. They are free citizens just 
as you and L and do not have 
time to listen to childish cuts 
made by their nlarrow minded 

Speaking of frustration, as our 
friend did last week, it really 
frustrates me to think that some 
one can outwardly be a judge of 
someone else that they do not 
know personally. 

I think that they should be 
entitled to live the kind of life 
that they emjoy most. 

Thank you, 
Bob Hermann 

Minutes of SGA 


I noted with avid interest the 
remarks made in this column 
last week by Mr. Cullin. It seems 
now that Mr. Cullin along with 
many other members of our Stu- 
dent Body, fail drastically to rea- 
lize the significance of what 
might be called individuality. 

I am not qualified to comment 
on the odor of these people's 
hair, because somehow or other 
I have never been that intimate 
with those who have long hair, 
even though I am proud to say 
that some of them are my friends. 

As to the fact that there are 
thirty-nine other states, this is 
entirely irrelevant. There are 
other countries also to which one 
might go and many more than 
thirty mine. In retort, I would say 
that those who sympathize with 
Mr. Cullin's views should get into 
a time machine and go to Ger- 
many of about 1932, when Hitler 
was made dictator and national- 
ism and conservatism were the 

The South, a remnant of our 
perhaps not so glorious past, is 
not a territorial division as many 
would think, but more of an eth- 
nic pressure group that fights 
change. The "South" or Mr Cul- 
lin's views of the South is no 
longer what could be called con- 
servative, but. is reactionary. 

The time has come and gone 
for the "South" to recognize in- 
tellect, and reward it properly 
for its assets rather than reward 
mediocrity in spite of its inher- 
ent liabilities. 

The "South" is a territorial 
section which is suffering under 
the yoke of anti-intellectuals as 
is evidenced by the positions of 
the Southern states in the nation- 
al view of attaining academic ex- 
cellence. Yes, the time Has come 

Burns called the meeting to order. 
Burns lead the group in prayer, fol- 
lowed by the pledge of alligence. Due 
to the time element, the minutes were

coming Parade would be possible.

Deadline for ACT 
Exams is Nov. 11 

Dr. Tandy McElwee, head of 
the Counseling and Testing De- 
partment, and Louisiana's repre- 
sentative in the American College 
Testing program, has announced 
that the deadline for filing for 
the next ACT exam will be Nov. 

High school seniors who enroll 
in college in the summer or fall 
and who apply by the Nov. 11 
deadline will take the examina- 
tions on Dec. 14. 

McElwee said the ACT exams 
will be administered in 26 centers 
in Louisiana. Last week more than 
5,500 students took the ACT tests 
in the state. 

In order to be admitted to any 
of the public institutions in 
Louisiana, high school students 
must have taken the ACT tests. 
Many of the private colleges also 
require ACT scores. 

High school students may take 
the tests at any of the testing 
centers and may have their 
scores reported to three colleges 
or universities of thier choice. 

Student informational bulletins 
and application forms for the 
tests, which take four hours to 
administer, may be obtained 
from high school principlals or 

and gone, but the challenge is 
renewed every year when bril- 
liant teachers come into the 
"South" and leave, and when 
students graduate from "South- 
ern" schools and leave this sec- 
tion of the country never to re- 

This brain drain must be stop- 
ped and can be stopped if the 
majority of students and tax- 
payers that intellect must be re- 
warded for its metaphysical 
values as well as the economic 
benefits that can only be obtain- 
ed by a change.

HildebrancTs Crew Faces Hard 
Schedule in Year of Hopes 

Northwestern faces one of its 
most rugged cage schedules in 
many years this season. In addi- 
tion to the usual Gulf Conference 
teams, three other conferences 
will be represented at Prather 
Coliseum and some top indepen- 
dent teams will make appearanc- 
es here.

Vega Returns From. Olympics 

Coach Armando Vega revealed 
disappointment and enthusiasm 
over the 1968 Olympics held in 
high-altitude Mexico City. The 
disappointment came over his 
star pupil Richard Loyd who was 
injured a week before the games 
and could not compete. Loyd was 
scratched from competition in 
order to be in good shape for 
his promising future. 

Vega noted that the Games 
were very artistically done and 
could be compared to the 1964 
Olympics in Tokyo. He saw little 

evidence of the student unrest 
that had been so widely publiciz- 
ed before the Games. 

Gymnastics was the most popu- 
lar event and by far the most 
colorful. The Mexican people 
recognized the power and beauty 
of the performances of all the 
nations' athletes. 

Vega expressed his hope for 
gymnastics to become more popu- 
lar in America and especially 
with the students of NSC. North- 
western fields one of the top 
gymnastics teams in the nation. 

Intramural Scoop 

Trueman Sets 
Home Cross 
Country Mark 

Paul Trueman set a new NSC 
cross country course record with 
a clocking of 17:40 on the 3.8 
mile home path last Friday. The 
old record was set in 1966 by 
John McDonald of Southwestern. 
Trueman beat the existing record 
by 11 seconds. It was the fourth 
individual win of the season in 
as many outings for Trueman. 

McNeese took top honors at 
the meet with 29 points. The Cow- 
boys won on the strength of 
Dickey Morgan's second place 
(17:59) and good depth. In ad- 
dition to Morgan's second they 
also copped fourth, sixth, eighth, 
ninth, tenth, and eleventh. 

Northeast placed second as a 
team with 48 points while North- 
western and La. Tech were a 
distant third and fourth with 75 
and 90 points respectively. 

Millar Mangrum was the De- 
mon's runner-up man with a 
fourteenth place and a time of 

La. Tech will host a triangular 
distance meet at Ruston today 
with Northeast, NSC, and Tech 

Touch football rounded out this 
week with Paus Bas Taus com- 
ing in first place with a 10-1-1 
overall record. The winners took 
the championship game, 14-13, 
from Kappa Sigma. 

The fast play in the paddle- 
ball action produced Whitey 
Horst as the first place winner 
and Steve Haney in the runner- 
up slot. 

The badminton competition, 
with nearly 50 entries was com- 
pleted with Charles Stokes and 
Skeeter Henry in first and sec- 
ond places.

dormitories were not air-condi- 
tioned and said that this condi- 
tion will be remedied in the near 
future with the air-conditioning 
of all of the dormitories except 
Sheib Hall. 

Closing the interview was a 
discussion on the new SAGA 
food service. Kilpatrick acknow- 
ledged the fact that it is not by 
any means perfect, but that it 
is much better than anything 
we've had in the past. 

As for the long lines, the Presi- 
dent reported that they are un- 
avoidable since the faculty is 
operating at maximum capacity. 

The interview was the first in 
a series of interviews to be uti- 
lized as a tool to increase con- 
tact between the students and 
the administraion. The interviews 
will be held bi-weekly and will 
be published in the Current

Brodnax Sidelined 
For Rest of Year 

Senior center, Randy Brodnax 
has ended his football career at 
Northwestern a little sooner 
than expected. Randy is definite- 
ly out for the season as a result 
of torn ligaments and cartilage 
suffered in the loss to La. Tech. 

It was hopeful for a while 
that Brodnax's right knee would 
be sufficiently healed to play out 
his fourth year of varsity ball. 
The disappointing verdict came 
earlier this week. 

The coaching staff expressed 
concern over the loss of Brodnax 
and praised him as a fine leader. 

Stepping in for Brodnax will 
be freshman Gary McCreary from 
Baton Rouge. The 6'1" 200 pound-

a real prospect.

Students Disrupt Campus With Parity Raid 

Friday, November 1, 1968 

What was intended to be harm- 
less fun turned out to be neither 
harmless or fun for some indi- 
viduals in the highly touted but 
never-the-less complete flop 
"panty raid" that was conducted 
from the time of approximately 
10:00 p.m. last night to the wee 
hours of the morning today. 

Rumors of a possible raid had 
been circulating around campus 
for several days. Chief of the 
NSC Campus Security, James 
Lee, told Current Sauce reporters 
that the Security force was in- 
formed of the rumors and pre- 
cautions were made with the Nat- 
chitoches Police Department. Ten 
Security officers were on duty 
along with approximately 10-15 
city policemen, and two State 
Police cars. Thirty-three students 
were arrested during the disturb- 
ance. Most of those arrested were 
released on bond Friday 

Dean of Students, Dudley Ful- 
ton, was roughed up in the vicin- 
ity of Louisiana Hall while trying 
to restore order. The lone assail- 
ant was reported to be quite vile 
and intoxicated. No identification 
could be made on the attacker, 
therefore no charges were filed. 

AUSA Group 
Donates Blood 

One of the little recognized 
but truly honored organizations 
in the Army is the "Association 
of the United States Army" or 

The AUSA was established to 
help round out the soldier, build 
patriotism, and military bearing, 
and to make better officers and 
citizens of the members. 

The Northwestern Chapter, the 
Robert E. Sylvest Company, of 
the AUSA has as its faculty ad- 
visor Major Clifford J. Eby. 

Recently, a wounded Viet Nam 
war veteran, Grover H. Box was 
in the veteran's hospital in Hous- 
ton in need of urgent brain sur- 
gery. The operation was delayed 
because of the lack of six pints 
of blood. 

Six members of the local com- 
pany donated the six remaining 
pints of blood. These AUSA 
members are Barry Eason, Robin 
Butler, Glen Barnette, David 
Dickson, Bruce Hobby, and Bob 
Koll. This action is a prime ex- 
ample of the fulfilled purpose of 
the local AUSA chapter.

A Campus Security man was al- 
so pushed around when he was 
attempting to make an arrest. 
The student was arrested and 
turned over to the Natchitoches 
police. He was not readily identi- 

Several windows were broken 
during the course of the raid but 
the extent of the damage is not 
known at this time. 

"Let 'em go!* 

The law forces moved in on 
about 200 male students gather- 
ed in front of Rapides Hall at 
12:30 a.m. this morning and were 
promptly greeted with chants of, 
"Let 'em go Let 'em go!", re- 
ferring to the students who had 
been arrested earlier. The police 
group disbanded in hopes of 
students doing the same but the 
arrested students were still held 
by police. It is not known at this 
time what the consequences of 
the charged will be. 

When the police dispersed, 
most of the crowd did likewise 
with some mutterings of re- 
organizing at 2:00 a.m. A hand- 
ful did regroup at this time but 
most had gone to bed. There 
were later attempts of panty 
raids by small groups but the 

minor activity was mostly con- 
fined to taking screens off Caddo 
and other halls. 

Girls Well Prepared 
During the course of the night 
officials at Sabine Hall announc- 
ed that their dorm was under 
complete control and that they 
presumed that other dorms were 
in similiar situations. 

Most of the girl's dorms were 
blacked out during the time of 
the most fierce action and as one 
lady put it, "We are very proud 
of our girls and the way they 
handled themselves." 

Warnings Given 

Dean Fulton said, "We are go- 
ing to do our best to put a stop, 
to this sort thing and encourage 
the students not to do it again. 
We will deal with the problem 
directly and bluntly." 

According to Chief Lee, as a 
result of the attempted raid, the 
whole educational system was 
disrupted. The few that actually 
participated did an injustice to 
the rest of the students. 

Further action may be taken 
in the form of arrests as a re- 
sult of pictures that were taken 
by officers of students that were 

Chief Lee commented that the 
onlooker is considered as guilty 
as the actual participants. They 
aid the situation by edging on the 
few that undertake detrimental 
action. He also stated that those 
found guilty in the raid could be 
expelled from school. He men- 
tioned that breaking and entering 
on campus is a violation of a 
state law and serious results 
could transpire. 

Causes Discussed 

The panty raid was unique in 
that most action of this type us- 
ually comes much later iin the 
school year, mostly in the Spring. 
The raid was thought to have 
come about because of boredom 
on the part of the students which 
may have resulted from the fact 
that no football games have been 
played in two weeks. 

It must be said that only a few 
students actually got involved in 
action that wasl looked upon un- 
favorably. After midnight most 
of the crowds that had gathered 
around Natchitoches and Rapides 
Hall broke off into smaller and 
less dangerous groups. These 
people mostly talked and event- 
ually went their own ways back 
to their dorms. 


The Psychology Club will hold 

a meeting Thursday, Nov. 7 at 

7:00 p.m. The meeting will be 
held in Caldwell Hall, room 212, 
and is for the purpose of voting 
on prospective members who 
must be present.

34 Are Arrested As 
Result of Parity Raid 

Thirty-four students were ar- 
rested Oct. 31 as a result of a 
campus wide disturbance label- 
ed as the now famous Halloween 
"panty raid." Thirty-three of the 
students were charged with 
simple disturbing the peace. The 
other one was booked with charg- 
es of assault, resisting arrest, in- 
terfering with an officer, and dis- 
turbing the peace. 

Those charged with disturbing 
the peace were released on $25 
bond late Friday afternoon from 
the city jail. A $200 bond ac- 
companied the release of the stu- 
dent with multiple charges. 

Registrar Office

luiar Feature 

Twenty-two students forfeited 
their bond while three pleaded 
guilty. Two of the three paid a 
$25 dollar fine and cost of court. 
The remaining one will be sen- 
tenced Monday. 

Nine students pleaded not 
guilty and will be tried Monday 
at 4 p.m. 

President Arnold Kilpatrick 
stated that the students involv- 
ed will be brought before a dis- 
ciplinary board made up of stu- 
dents and administration. No 
definite date has been set for the 
hearings with he board. 

National politics envaded the 
student scene on campus last 
week as two political rallies, one 
for the now President Elect Ric- 
hard M. Nixion, and the other for 
defeated presidential aspirant, 
George C. Wallace, grabbed the 

The Nixon rally was held on 
Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m. in 
front of the Student Union. It 
was sponsored by the Young 
Republican's Club on campus. 
The rally featured three pro-Nix- 
on speakers, Miss Dixie Fleege, 
Nelson Moak, and G.T. Spence, 
and one pro-Wallace speaker 
who took the podium at the re- 
quest of the Nixon people. 

The onlookers remained ord- 
erly throughout, except for the 
usual cheers and jeers from the 
opposing factions. 

On Thursday afternoon at 4:30 
p.m., the Wallace supporters 
convened at the same place as 
did the Republicans. A crowd of 
approximately 100-150 people 
were on hand to listen to a num- 
ber of speakers in Wallace's be- 
half. The rally's most dynamic 
talker, and also its co-ordinator, 
was Randall Jordan, a Baptist 
lay minister. 

A large number of protestors, 
including supporters of Humph- 
rey, pacifists, and members of 
the liberal left appeared on the 
scene, apparently to boost their 
own particular beliefs while 
heckling the Wallace people. 

A sign proclaiming "Seig Heil" 
was draped over the balcony rail- 
nd moments later a fight erupted 
amcing the various activists in 
the crowd among supporters of 
the left and right. 

The scuffle ended in a matter 
of minutes without any outside 
influence since no Camus Secur- 
ity officials were present at the 
time. One officer did appear a 
few minutes later whem a student 
burned a Wallace-LeMay bumper 
sticker while standing on the 

After the rally had ended, a 
large number of ultra-right sup- 
porters gathered near the exit 
where the leftist were attempting 
to leave. One girl was pushed 
and shoved, and her placards rip- 
ped from her hands and destroy- 

An all-out melee was averted 
however when more Campus Se- 
curity officers arrived to quell 
the disturbance.

Flag, Publicity, Car 
Wash — Top Issues 

Several minor matters of busi- 
ness dominated Monday night's 
Student Government Association 

Items such as the obtaining of 
a new college flag, Alumni stick- 
ers, the feasibility of forming a 
publicity committee separate 
from the public relations com- 
mittee, and talk on the possibil- 
ity of repairing the car wash on 
Chaplain's Lake consumed the 
bulk of the meeting. 


For the purpose of keeping 
Northwestern students informed, 
the Current Sauce is reserving a 
column for bulletins from the 
Registrar's office. In forthcom- 
ing issues readers may expect 
to find information concerning 
deadlines, added or dropped 
courses, grades, and other news 
items that would be beneficial to 
teachers and students. 

Midterm grades seem to be the 
main concern of NSC faculty and 
scholars about this time each 
semester. From the Registrar

SGA president Henry Burns 
told the SGA that if a new college 
flag was obtained it would be dis- 
played wherever the Louisiana 
and American flags are display- 
ed jointly. 

Burns also announced that the 
alumni stickers, bearing the slo- 
gan "Save Your College", would 
be distributed to every student 
by members of the Associated 
Men Students. 

The stickers are products of 
the Louisiana Alumni Association 
and are used to call attention to 
he financial crisis of most of the 
schools in the state. 

The Louisiana Alumni Associ- 
ation has recently called for the 
public to come to the aid of the 
schools in this matter. 

Following almost 30 minutes of 
debate between one faction head- 
ed by senior class secretary-treas- 
urer Scotty Maxwell and SGA 
parliamentarian Larry McCollom 
and another headed by SGA 
treasurer Tony Rispoli, the group 
passed a recommendation by the 
committee on committees which 
would create a publicity commit- 
tee composed of a chairman and 
two typists. 

Senior Gary Daniels, speaking 
for several students, asked the 
SGA why the car wash on Chap- 
lain's Lake was broken and if 
money could be appropriated to 
have it repaired. 

Discussion revealed that the 
car wash had been broken for 
some two years and that money 
had been appropriated to the 
Interfraternity Council to have 
it fixed. 

Maxwell said the IFC had been 
unable to have the car wash re- 
paired for the amount of money 
appropriated for the project. 
Burns was directed to mett with 
members of the IFC to try to 
work out a solution to the prob- 
lem .

On Campus Unrest 

In view of the events of Halloween 1968, the Current 
Sauce feels safe in assuming that absolutely nothing will 
be taken for granted in the future with regard to student 
actions and administrative reactions. Within a matter of 
roughly 10 hours, the entire campus became the setting for 
a series of disturbances, culminated by an aborted "panty 

The problems began ominously enough when a political 
rally on behalf of presidential aspirant George C. Wallace 
erupted momentarily into a free-for-all on the balcony of 
the Student Union. That battle ended in a matter of minutes, 
but the tensions which caused the fight obviously smoldered 
within the participants until later that evening. Evidence 
of this can be found in the ill-fated "pie-eating contest" 
which was held in front of St. Denis dining hall immediately 
after the rally disbanded; it turned into a pie-throwing 

Of course the real problem didn't occur until after mid- 
night when at least 1000 men students launched the great 
"raid" almost simultaneously all over the campus. For the 
first hour it, too, appeared harmless enough, but ultimately 
it degenerated into an outright battle between the police 
and the students. The final tally showed 33 students arrest- 
ed and scores more alienated. 

We are not at liberty to elaborate on the various aspects 
of the raid, mostly because of a lack of reputable informa- 
tion, but we did want to stress what we believe to be the most 
significant aspect of the disturbances. 

The raid was apparently a warning, a notice of sorts, 
no matter how legimate, that student unrest does exist, even 
on our campus. The administrative forces of the college 
should not concentrate on punitive measures against the 
students, as much as they should consider the conditions 
which give rise to student revolts. And technically, that is 
exactly what the raid amounted to, a revolt against authority. 

No one faction can be blamed or castigated for the un- 
fortunate incidents which occurred during the raid, but we 
would advise that everyone consider the consequences in 
the future before instigating any new outbreaks of this type. 

Student participation and activism can be a most pro- 
fitable experience, but it must of necessity be of a more 
subdued nature, particularly in light of an over-reacting 
police department. 

Restraint should be the key word in the future .... 
for both sides.

New York Toured 
By Staff Journalists 

By Charles Skinner 
Current Sauce Editor 

It's a little feeling, Broadway, 
Central Park, a hippie football 
game. Grooving on the people. 
Humphrey of the gritty voice 
there too. 

New York was all there at the 
convention of the Associated 
Collegiate Press last week which 
was attended by staff members 
of the Current Sauce and Pot- 

Upon actually seeing it all, the 
songs and the television shows 
are somewhat inadequate because 
they fail to convey the real sig- 
nificance of such a place. 

Teeming with every sort of per- 
son in the world, abounding in 
every vice, distinctively liberal, 
New York is. 

Following is a smattering of an 
account of a trip aind a conven- 
tion which is not an attempt to 
be complete, but merely an ef- 
fort to convey an impression, for 
all were touched by the awesome 
bigness of everything. 

First as we departed from the 
taxi at the Waldorf-Astoria, we 
spotted a knot of people block- 
ing the entrance to the hotel. 
The group was composed of pho- 
tographers, secret service men, 
and curious onlookers such as us. 

Proceeding from the lobby of 
the hotel came Hubert Horatio 
Humphrey, calling a shrill "Thank 
you." as by standers gave ap- 

Proceeding from the large to 
the small, there was Central 
Park. The park, situated amid tre- 
mendous skyscrapers is the neu- 
tral zone, the dog-walk of the 

It is there that one can attract 
fifteen" nibbling squirrels. 

to Central Park on Thursday, 
November 1, a sports extrava- 
ganza took place, a hippie foot- 
ball game. After five minutes in 
the huddle, the competing teams 
were ready for combat. The ball 
was centered on the call and the 
quarterback faded back That was 

as far as the play got that time 
because he was tagged as he was 
clearing the hair from his eyes. 

On the next desperate and dra- 
matic play, the quarterback man- 
aged to release the ball for an 
end over end pass to the and. 
Everything was going fine at 
first because the fleet end's hair 
flew behind him as he ran, but 
this strategy went to pieces as 
he stopped to catch the ball and 
his hair caught up with him. 

Also in the park were other 
beautiful people who walked 
around, lay in the sun, and studi- 
ously enjoyed life. 

The "Village", was another 
choice spot full of everything 
"Grooving on the people," was 
what they did and there was a 
lot to groove on. The place was 
masquerade ball. Nobody was 
real, or were they. 

The Waldorf was the center of 
occupation. It was a place to go 
when the people had become un- 
bearable. It was a refuge from 
the milling millions, the cabs, 
and the hair. 

And then Broadway, every 
imaginable theatre, every imagin- 
able Jpicture, isind well over a 
thousand bars. 

There was the subway, seven- 
ty-five miles an hour to any- 
where in the city. It was a sure 
way to get close to New Yorkers, 
as often as not an unpleasant 

A representative of Reader's 
Digest was also at the convention 
urging budding journalists on to 
greater creativity and a healthy 
regard for the American way of 

Lee Iacocca, general manager 
of the Ford Corporation came 
also bringing a plea for imagina- 
tive thinking and the band, "The 
Going Thing," 

In retrospect, the trip was a 
whirligig of happenings, of as- 
sociations, and of people that no 
one could have experienced with- 
out being changed. 

APGOTE Organized 
To Promote Fitness 

The college has formed an or- 
ganization for faculty members 
and interested citizens in am ef- 
fort to further the national drive 
toward physical fitness. 

Called the Association for the 
Prevention of Getting 1 d

the organization has more than 
60 members

New Facilities 
Are Proposed 
By Kilpatrick 

Bond attorneys have been 
appointed by the State Board of 
Education to study the feasibility 
of building additional dormitories 
and dining facilities here. 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
purposed to the board this week 
a need for men's residence hall 
and a cafeteria, and the board 
named attorneys to study the 

In addition, the board appoint- 
ed engineers to design plans and 
specifications for air-conditioning 
existing dormitores. 

Kilpatrick said the student 
housing and cafeteria project 
will cost about $5 million, and 
plans are to construct the build- 
ings before the fall of 1970. 

The proposal for air-condition- 
ing existing dormitories will cost 
and the work would be completed 
by the opening of school next fall. 
The project would include all of 
the wormitories which are not 
now air-conditioned, with the ex- 
ception of Scheib Hall. 

This year, when the college 
reached a record enrollment of 
6,555 students, college officials 
had to reopen old dormitories on 
the campus which had previously 
been closed. 

Kilpatrick said there are 3,502 
students housed on campus this 
fall, which is capacity and brings 
crowded conditions in some dor- 
mitories. He said the additional 
housing and dining facilities are 
necessary for future growth. 

Both the dining facilities, St. 
Dermis and Iberville Halls are 
waiting lines have resulted, and 
Kilpatrick said a new dining 
facility wll be a necessity in 
order to serve the rapidly-grow- 
ing student body. 

Iberville Dining Hall now 
serves 2,500 students at each 
meal, and St. Denis is serving 
900 students three times daily. 

Kilpatrick said that in the fall 
of 1966, the completion of Rapides 
Hall, a men's dormitory, and 
Sabine Hall, a women's housing 
facility, provided for 1,400 stu- 
dents, and the space has already 
been filled. 

He pointed out that the college 
lost many students this fall be- 
cause the only housing avaiilable 
was in old dormitories. 

an interest in the program, and 
this fall APGOTE was organized. 

Some 200 people attended an 
organizational meeting of APG- 
OTE, when Dn. Joe Holoubek, 
Shreveport cardiologist, spoke on 
"Exercise and the Heart." 

Alost said there are 60 mem- 
bers who participate in the pro- 
gram daily and mamy others who 
take part on an irregular basis. 
One-hour sessions are held at 
noon and 5 p.m. each day.

Women's Gymnasium 
To Be Constructed 

The College requested bids this 
week on the construction of a 
$1.2 million women's physical 
education facility. 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
said bids on the single-story 
structure will be open on Nov. 26. 

Plans call for work to begin 
on the building in early January, 
and the structure should be com- 
pleted by the summer of 1970. 

To be constructed west of Sa- 
bine Hall, the new women's dor- 
mitory, the physical education 
building will have 57,000 square 
feet of floor area. 

Butler and Dobson of Natchi- 
toches are architects for the 
building, which will replace the 
women's gymnasium which was 
built in 1923. 

Dr. Robert Alost, head of the 
department of physical educa- 
tion said the new women's facil- 
ity will be completely air-condi- 
tioned and will have carpeting in 
some areas of the building. 

The building will provide of- 
fice space for 20 faculty mem- 
bers and graduate assistants and 
will have four classrooms. 

Featured on the main gym- 
nasium floor of the modern 
structure will be two full-size 
basketball courts for participa- 
tion and instruction in basket- 
ball, volleyball, badminton and 
other sports. 

Also included in the plans for 
the building are a gymnastics 
area, modern dance studio, gener- 
al dance area, conference rooms 
and handball and paddleball 
courts. Eight tennis courts will 
be built west of the facility. 

Dressing areas for men and 
women will be included in the 
structure and coeducational 
classes will be taught in the 


One of the most unique fea- 
tures of the building will be an 
extensive audio-visual program. 
There will be television screens 
and cameras in the classrooms 
and athletic participation areas. 

Classes and activities can be 
taped in the women's physical 
tapes and films can be shown in 
the building through the audio- 
visual center in the Arts and 
Sciences Building. 

Girl Scouts Plan 
Future Activities 

The Campus Girl Scouts will 
hold a regular weekly meeting on 
Monday at 6:45 p.m., in room 320 
of the Student Union. 

On the agenda for the meeting 
will be plans for a float for the 
Christmas Parade and program 
helps for Girl Scouts of various 
age levels. 

At a meeting held on October 
28, the proposed constitution was 
approved as written. Also at the 
meeting, ten girls were registered 
as adult members. The monthly 
dues for the local organization 
were set at 50 cents. 

A drive is currenly underway 
to secure members for this orga- 
nization. To be eligible, one must 
be a full-time student and be 
interested in Girl Scouting. How- 
ever, previous scouting experience 
is not required. 

The active members of the 
organization are Cynthia Kittler, 
president; Nancy Houtz, vice- 
president; Jackie Hawthorne, 
secretary; Trudy Bagwell, trea- 
surer; Sheryl Morse and June

In Must Game 

Pokes To Host Demons 

Tomorrow night in Cowboy 
Stadium McNeese will host the 
Purple and White in a must 
game for both clubs. Both teams 
will carry 1-1 district records in- 
to the contest and the loser can 
forget any share of the Gulf 
States Conference championship 

Northeast currently is in the 
drivers seat with a 3-1 conference 
record. Their only loss come at 
the hands of NSC, 7-3. Northwest- 
ern lost their lone game in con- 
ference play 42-39 against La. 
Tech. McNeese beat La. Tech but 
lost to Northeast which does not 
leave any favorite on the basis of 
scores or common foes. 

It will be the first game for 
NSC in three weeks as a result 
of an unusual two open ■ date 
date schedule. The Cowboys fell 
last week -to the clnslaught of 
Troy State, 52-0. 

McNeese will try to rely on a 
ball oomtrol offense much like 
Northeast. The Cowboys have had 
a 3.6 yard per try rushing record 
and they feel that this is their 
strongest weapon. They run from 
a wide and tight slot offensive 

Cowboy quarterback Ricky Mil- 
ler is somewhat like Steve Main- 
sur of Northeast. Miller is an ef- 
fective runner but has only com- 
pleted 31 of 80 passes for a mea- 
ger 38.7 per cent. His favorite 
target has been Larry Whatley 
who has caught 12 passes for 2 

touchdowns. The offense has 
averaged 20 points a game. 

The Cowboy defense resembles 
a pro-type set more than any 
other team in the GSC. They play 
a four-three defense with a four 
deep secondary. The secondary 
is varied in their coverage in 
that they play man-to-man and 
zone. They have picked off 16 
passes which ties a school record. 
Cowboy Jim Flemming holds the 
GSC lead with six. 

McNeese has a defensive line 
similar to that of La. Tech in 
size and quickness. They stunt 
and blitz frequently. 

Attacking the defense of the 
Cowboys will be a healthy De- 
mon starting backfield. Vic Ny- 
vall has recovered from his sec- 
ond shoulder dislocation although 
Coach Glenn Gossett warned that 
if hit in a certain way Nyvall 
could be out again. The rest has 
also helped Tony Papa who was 
nursing a hip pointed and twist- 
ed leg. 

Gossett said that he would 
stick with the game plan that 
has been successful im averaging 
over four touchdowns a game. 
He stated that a new wrinkle or 
two would be added but for the 
most part a balanced attack 
would seem definite. 

A three week layoff following 
the heart-breaking loss to Tech 
could have been bad for the 
morale of the team but Gossett 
ss/id that the boys Slave been

working very hard and realize 
that this is a must game. He am- 
phasized that the defensive line 
has been working real hard after 
being out played by the offen- 
sive line of the last opponent. 

The defense will have to be up 
to par to keep the Cowboys out 
of the scoring range of McNeese's 
talented place kicker Wayne La- 
Grappe. LaGrappe has kicked 
five of nine field goals with the 
longest being good for 52 yards. 
He has not missed iin 17 conver- 
sion attempts. 

McNeese holds an 11-6 edge 
in the series which includes a 
21-7 verdict an last year's road 
to the GSC title. 

Volleyball Team 
Takes Honors In 
Texas Tournament 

The women's varsity volleyball 
team has just returned with top 
honors from an intercollegiate 
volleyball tournament. On Satur- 
day, November 2, 1968, the North- 
western State College volleyball 
team played in an invitational 
tournament at Texas Women's 
College in Denton, Texas. The 
girls were able to win first place 
after a full day of excellent com- 

Those girls making the trip in- 
cluded Judie Hillmam, Julia Park- 
er, Marcia Elkins, Debbre Krane, 
Nina Morzan, Fern Martin, Pat 
Tauzin, Mary Kay Schwartz, Don- 
na Crawford, and Dianne Morris. 

This weekend the team will 
travel to Beaumont, Texas to 
compete in a tournament at La- 
mar Tech. 

NSC's Homecoming Activities 

The second annual Northwest- 
ern State College Alumni golf 
tournament will be held at the 
Natchitoches Country Club Nov. 
15 as part of NSC's 1968 Home- 
coming activities. 

Walter Ledet, Registrar at NSC 
and president of the Graduate 
"N" Club, said that the 18-hole 
tourney, slated for the afternoon, 
will have three divisions. Com- 
petition will be held in the open 
alumni division, an "N" Club 
division for the former Demon 
athletes, a four-ball and an award 
will go to the player with the 
fewest putts in the round. 

Ledet said that a player in the 
four ball may have as many par- 
tners as he desires. 

A shrimp boil is slated at the 
country club following the golf 

Nov. 16, in addition to the 
Homecoming game with the 
University of Southwestern Lou- 
isiana, the Graduate "N" Club 
will elect officers in the morning 
and have a social for its members 
and their families in the after- 
noon following the football game. 
The social is scheduled for the 
VFW Hall. 

Dandy Don - Key to Demon Attack 

Before the 1968 football season 
is over, the title page on North- 
western State College's passing 
and total offense record book 
will read, "The Don Guidry 

Guidry, he splendid senior from 
Church Point, has already shat-

Through six games this fall 
Dandy Don has completed 63 of 
144 passes for 949 yards and 11 
touchdowns with three intercep-

more yards on 57 carries. 

His performance thus far has 
been remarkable for a quarter- 
back who is overlooked year in 
and year out when the post-honors 
are passed out. 

Guidry has already erased the

that figure almost out of sight 
for future NSC chunkers. 

In addition Guidry has surpass- 
ed his own records for most pass- 
es attempted, 116, completed, 
61, and for most touchdown 
passes, 10. He already has the 
standard for the highest comple- 
tion percentage, 61 per cent, 
which he established in 1966. 

In the total offense department, 
Guidry wiped out his own record 
for most plays, 790 (he has 201 
this year), and most yards net, 
1,016, set by Malcolm (Deacon) 
Lewis in 1966. 

Don so far has averaged 194.5 
yards a game and should break 
Lewis' per game average of 112.8 
handily this season. 

Northwestern's assistant basket- 
ball coach Don Beasley, and all- 
GSC signal caller during his play- 
ing career at NSC, holds the 
record for most interceptions in 
a season with 10. Guidry has 
thrown the ball away only 14 
times in the three full seasons, 
plus six games, and has had only 
three picked off this year. 

With Guidry having a record 
season, it only follows that 
Northwestern receiving records 
should be in danger. Split end 
Al Phillips, only a sophomore, 
has caught seven touchdown pass- 
es in six games this year to break 
the old mark of five, set by Billy 
Jack Booth in 1958 and Steve 
Gaspard in 1966. Gaspard is NSC's 
starting tight end this year. 

Guidry's three-year and six- 
game totals are worthy of mention 
also. Since he threw his first 
pass for Northwestern in 1965 
Guidry has fired 446 in all, with 
226 completions good for 3,140 
yards and 33 touchdowns. 

Dandy Don still has three more 
games in 1968 to add to an al- 
ready sparkling career at North- 
western and perhaps be rewarded 
with his first berth on the all- 
GSC team.

GSC Refs "Call 'Em As They See 'Em" 


This year, as in past years, 
when "northern" football teams 
of Louisiana travel to the "south- 
ern" region there is talk of the 
referees being a little one-sided 
iin their calls. Few people realize 
the factors involved in becoming 
an official ia ttie Gulf States 

To begin officiating, the pros- 
pective referee joins a high 
school football officials associa- 
tion where he has to pass thor- 
ough examinations on rules and 
procedures. For two years after 
this he will only work junior var- 
sity and junior high games. If ap- 
proved, he can start working var- 
sity ball although he will not 
start working AAA ball until at 
least five years. Some officials 
never reach the AAA level. 

The GSC does not consider of- 
ficials until they have had at 
least eight years of experience. 
In addition he must have the 
recommendation of his high 
school association as the best of- 
ficial in that association The GSC 

has on file 10-12 associations and 
they seldom take over two new 
officials in any one year. The se- 
lection is made by Commissioner 
er of the GSC, Stanley Gallo- 
way, after Director of Officials, 
Bob Hazel recommends them. Of- 
ficials may be dropped in the 
same manner — recommendation 
of the Director and approval by 
the Commissioner. 

GSC refs rarely make a mistake 
as a result of lack of officiating 
experience. The average of offi- 
ciating experience for refs is 
16 years. 

All positions — referee, umpire, 
head linesman, field judge, and 
back judge — get the same pay. 
They make $75 dollars an outing 
plus nine cents a mile travel al- 
lowance. Officials are not union- 
ized. They must report to the 
game cite one and a half hours 
before game time to review rules 
and procedures and mote any un- 
usual aspects of the playing field. 

One can see that officials make 
a greater investment of time and 
effort than most people realize. 


Clayton Resigns Director's Post 

Jack Clayton, athletic director 
at Northwestern since 1957, has

to President Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 
Clayton announced his resigna-

the athletic directorship until an 
athletic director is appointed. 
Clayton's position as head base- 
ball coach has not been filled 
as yet. 

Clayton served as athletic direc- 
tor and head football coach at 
NSC from 1957 until 1967, when 
he stepped out of coaching to 
devote full time to the athletic 
director's duties. 

Beginning his coaching career 
a.t Bossier City High School in 
1936, Clayton went to Vivian to 
1942 and the next year began a 
four-year tour of duty in the Unit- 
ed States Navy. 

He joined the collegiate ranks 
in 1946 as basketball coach at 
Centenary. In 1948, Clayton be- 
came head coach at Western Ken- 
tucky and remained there until 
he moved to Northwestern in 

Clayton's 18-year college coach- 
ing record is 108-68-4. His 10- 
year record at NSC is 58-35-2. 
During his tenure at Northwest- 
ern, he won or tied for the Gulf 
States Conference championship 
four times.

Greeks Maintain Full Schedule of Activities 

News from all the events of 
last week — such as the first leg 
of the Lady of the Bracelet 
Pagent, to the panty raid, to a 
whirlwind trip to New York by 
staff members of the Poupourri 
and Current Sauce — made it 
impossible to make room in this 
Current Sauce edition for all 
the Greeks news. Only four of 
the groups are represented this 
week, but the remaining soror- 
ities and fraternities will have 
priority next week. 


Pledging was held Thursday 
October 24 in the Sigma Kappa 
house. Becky Risdon added her 
name to the steadily increasing 
list of Sigma Kappa pledges. 
After the pledging, actives and 
pledges posed with one of the 
pledges Model "T",s for a picture. 
The car, belonging to pledge 
Fran Hollaway, was the talk of 
the campus when it was first 
used before State Fair Weekend 
to promote Demon spirit. 

Sigma Kappa pledges surprised 
with engraved Phi Mu pledge 


breakfast at 6:30 Thursday morn- 
ing. When the actives entered 
the house, they found a freshly 
painted and re-arranged living 
room. A great deal of work went 
into that pledge project and the 
actives are indeed proud of their 
pledge class. 

Sigma Kappa Contestants in 
the Lady of the Barcelet Pagant 
Wilson, Theresa Lombardino, 
and Mel Lambert. Brenda Wilson 
still eligible after first round 
competition has been completed. 

Sigma Kappa's annual Fall 
slumber party will be Homecom- 
ing weekend. After parties Satur- 
day night, all actives and pledges 
will report to the house for fun — 
so watch out, pledges. 


Recently Phi Mu held its 
annual big sister-little sister 
ceremony and party. Refresh- 
ments were served and the big 
sisters disclosed their idtntitie6 
by presenting their little sisters 

Phi Mu contestants in the Lady 
of the Bracelet Pagent were Kar- 

en Alston, Christie Leach, Dee 
Barbo, Larraine Perkins, and 
Patty Shoudy. After the first day 
of competition, two of the girls 
advanced to further competition. 
Those two are Karen Alston, and 
Dee Barbo. 

Lynette Ader was chosen re- 
cently as the College Intramural 
Rodeo Queen. 

Last Saturday Phi Mu held a 
rummage sale in the Food Kink 
parking lot. Committee chairman 
was Beth Leach. Profit from the 
sale will go to the USS Hope. 
This is one of Phi Mu's national 
philanthropy projects, and be- 
cause each chapter donates money 
from activities throughout the 
year, Phi Mu is the largest spon- 


Last Friday night Pi Kappa 
Phi held a Halloween costume 
party in Campti. Prizes were a- 
warded to Mr. and Mrs. Calvin 
Campbell for their costumes. The 
couple were dressed as mummies 
and kept their identies secret 
until time for the awards. 

Pi Kap brothers travel o Lake 
Charles this week end to take

in a football game, preceding the 
cowboy-demon game. The winner

Plans are now being made for 
Founders day week-end, Decem- 
ber 6-8. A semi-formal dinner 
dance will take place Friday 
night, Christmas lights and en- 
tertainment Saturday nigh, and

pledge football game on Sunday. 
Brother Charlie Brown entered 
the college intramural rodeo 
here recently and walked away 
with top honors in the bronc- 
riding division. Congradulation, 


Saturday Kappa Sigma was 
proud to initiate nine pledges. 
The inew initiates are: Darrell 
Baker, Joe Davis, Peter Debroeck, 
Ronnie Hooper, Skip Hukill, Jim- 
my Janes, Paul Piazza, John 
Sanders, and Doug Spears. 

The "Glass Managerie" will 
provide entertainment tonight 

for an all-college dance sponsor- 
ed by Kappa Sigma and Sigma 
Kappa. The dance will be held 
in the Student Union Ballroom 
from 8-11 p.m. There will be no 
admission charged, but ID cards 
must be presented at the door 
and couples cnly will be allowed. 

A banquet was held Sunday in 
honor of the Kappa Sigma in- 
tramural football players who 
took first place in the fraternity 
division and second place in the 
overall intramural standings. 

Ben Cooper, a graduating sen- 
ior, was awarded the "Most Valu- 
able Player" award. This award 
was given to the most productive 
player. Records show Cooper to 
have scored more touchdowns in 
the past three years than any 
other individual. 

The "Spirit Award" was given 
to Mike Armstrong, whose par- 
ticipation and enthusiasim during 
Demon football games and all 
Kappa Sigma activities was con- 
sidered exceptionable.

coming party following he NSC-

McCollom Discusses SGA's 
New Judicial Branch 

By James Walker 
Current Sauce Managing Editor 

(Editor's Note — One of the 
amendments passed in last 
spring's student elections called 
for the formation of a judicial 
branch of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. SGA parlia- 
mentarian Larry McCollom, who 
served as the chief justice on the 
court, recently asked for a chance 
to explain some of the workings 
and intricasies of the court. 

Current Sauce — Explain brief- 
ly the make-up of the court and 
how it is determined. 

McCollom— The court, which 
incidently will be called the 
Northwestern State College Stu- 
dent Court, is made up of seven 
judges and a court reporter to 
be appointed by the SGA presi- 
dent. Six of the judges have al- 
ready been appointed by Henry 
Burns and approved by the SGA. 
They are Ronnie Brown, senior 
associate, Ronnie Spiller and Bob 
Lee, junior associates, Spanky 
Baker and Gary Haggard, sopho- 
more associates and) myself as 
chief justice. Irene Morgel is the 
court reporter, and a freshman 
associate will be appointed later. 

Current Sauce — In reviewing 
cases what method of voting will 
the judges use in deciding the 

McCollom — After hearing a 
case the judges will go into a 
conference where each judge will 
have one vote, except for the 
chief justice who will vote only 
in case of a tie. The results of 
all cases will be printed in the 
Current Sauce by citation num- 
ber. A majority opinion will be 
written and judges who cast dis- 
sident votes may write a minor- 
ity opinion. 

Current Sauce — Briefly, what 
is the purpose of the student 

McCollom — Basically, the stu- 

dent court was formed to provide 
the students a student hearing 
involving constitutional and disci- 
plinary problems, 

Current Sauce — What will be 
the court's jurisdiction? 

McQollom — The court's origi- 
nal jurisdiction will come from 
cases involving questions related 
to the SGA constitution. Appel- 
late jurisdiction will come from 
cases appealed from the Associat- 
ed Women Students' JD board 
and the soon to be formed As- 
sociated Men Student's JD board. 

Current Sauce — How would a 
person go about bringing a case 
before the court? 

McColom — When a perscin 
wants to bring a case before the 
court he should fill out a charge 
form at the SGA room in the 
Student Union and notify the 
court of his intention to bring 
suit. After a charge has been 
filed a preliminary hearing will 
be held with both the plaintiff 
and defendant present to deter- 
mine if the case should be heard 
by the court. 

Current Sauce — Will students 
brought before the court be ac- 
corded the same rights as in city, 
state and national courts? 

McCollom — Yes. Each person 
will be accorded complete pro- 
ceedural rights under the con- 
stitution of the United States and 
of NSC. These proceedural rights 
include the right to council, al- 
though no professional lawyers 
will be allowed. Other rights 
are that a person will not be re- 
quired to testify against himself, 
right of appeal in each necessary 
case, and burden of proof lies 
with the prosecution. 

Current Sauce — When will the 
court be ready to accept cases 
and transact business? 

McCollom — Although there are 
still a few minor details we have

not worked out we are ready to 
have cases brought before us 
now. We urge every student who 
feels he has a legal grievance 
not to hesitate about bringing 
his case to us. 

Current Sauce — Who is eligible 
to bring charges in the court? 

McCollom— Any student, facul- 
ty member or administration 
staff member may bring charges. 

Current Sauce — Who can at- 
tend these court sessions? 

McCollom — All court sessions 
will be open to the public un- 
less there is sufficient reason 
that the court deems otherwise. 

Current Sauce — As an example 
could any cases involving last 
week's panty raid wind up be- 
fore the court? 

McCollom — Yes, but where a 
city ordinance was violated we 
would have no jurisdiction. 


Graduate Record Examina- 
tions (GRE) will be offered again 
at NSC's campus Jan. 18. 

Applications to take the exam 
may be entered as late as Dec. 24. 

The test will be given at other

Former Troy State Editor Receives 
Journalism Award at Convention 

A former college newspaper 
editor last week received the 
first Freedom Award for inde- 
pendence in collegiate journal- 

Gary C. Dickey, former editor 
of the Troy State College news- 
paper in Alabama, received the 
award at a convention of the 
National Council of College 
Publications Advisers and the 
Associated Collegiate Press. 

The presentation was made 
by Dr. Dario Politella, NCCPA 
president and head of the de- 
partment for journalistic studies 
at the University of Massa- 
chusetts. The award was provid- 
ed to the NCCPA by the John

Politella said Dickey was 
chosen for journalistic courage 
in challenging the claim of col- 
lege administrators that no 
criticism of state officials was 

taking part in both the noon nd 5 
p.m sessions. 

Alost said weights and isome- 
tric exercise equipment are also 
provided in the Mein's Gymnasi-

To Present Carmen Opera 


by Jay Keppel 
Current Sauce Staff Reporter 

The opera CARMEN, will be 
performed tonight by the touring 
Goldovsky Grand Opera Theater 
at 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Audi- 
torium. The concert spoken in 
English is being presented by the 
Northwestern-Natchitoches Con- 
cert Association as part of its 
fall series of special musical en- 

This production will be a 
throwback to the original version 
of CARMEN which uses spoken 
words rather than snug recita- 
tives. This effect enables the act- 
ion to move faster, and the re- 
sult is "live and appealing the- 
ater" according to Newsweek 

Boasting an expanded company 
of 70 actors,musicians, and vocal- 
ists, the troupe features a large 
orchestra and chorus, extensive 
scenery, and fresh costumes in 
an attempt to make this, the 14th 
annual tour for the campany, the 
best ever. 

The colorful story tells the tale 
of a gypsy who tempts a soldier 
to desert the army to follow her, 
only to spurn him later for a 
bull-fighter. The exciting music 
has a distinctly Spanish flavor, 
amd is most enjoyable during the 
dramatic situations throughout 
the play. 

Singing in the title role is Deb- 
ria Brown, messosoprano who 
portrayed the role at her debut 
with the New York City Center 
Opera. The part of Don Jose will 
be sung by Thomas O'Leary, ten- 
or, who has performed with the 
Regensburg Opera in Germany, 
and the Stratford Festival in 
Canada*. Harvey Hicks, baritone, 

Arranging the sets for an opera such as CARMEN can be a ticklish business, for set men must strive for

FROM: Arnold R. Kilpatrick, President 

We have had a number of complaints from 
students living on campus that they have been 
subjected to threats and harassment by the use 
of annonymous telephone calls and notes. 

The matter, according to reports, has reached 
a stage wherein it is interfering with the academic 
endeavors of many. Anything that reaches that 
level of disturbance is directly in opposition to 
every aim and objection we have, and it is encum- 
bent on the administration of this institution to 
use every means at our disposal to insure that 
this form of behaviour ceases. 

I, therefore, request every person that pos- 
sesses information that might lead to the appre- 
hension of the individuals responsible to report 
this information to the house directors, dormitory 
counselours, monitors or personnel deans. 

Any person found guilty of this harrassment 
will be subject to immediate disciplinary action. 

Arnold R. Kilpatrick 

Music Grant Received 

The Department of Music has 
received a $2,500 grant from the 
Louisiana Council for Music and 
Performing Arts, Inc., it was an- 
nounced this week by department 
head, Dr. Joseph Carlucci. 

The money will be used to un- 
derwrite a special Governor's 
Honors Program in music at NSC 
next summer. Some 200 talented 
music students will be selected 
from Louisiana junior and senior 
high schools, upon recommenda 
tion of their principals and music 
teachers, to participate in a week- 
long program of rehearsals and 
concerts under outstanding music 
teachers. Students may enroll in 
Band, Orchestra or Chorus. 

Matching funds will be provid- 
ed by Northwestern State Col- 
lege and students chosen will be 
housed and fed on campus at 
no expense. This project is now 
in its third year, having begun 
two years ago on other college 
campuses in the state of Louisi- 

ana. It offers excellent opportuni- 
ties for talented young musicians 
to expand their creative activi- 
ties and gain professional guid- 
ance in preparation for possible 
careers in the Arts. 

The Louisiana Council for 
Music and the Performing Arts 
was organized five or six years 
ago as the Louisiana agency for 
handling federal moneys provided 
by the Arts and Humanities Act. 
The organization, whose presi- 
dent is Mrs. Edwin Blum of New 
Orleans, has done much to de- 
velop interest in and financial 
support for all of the Arts, in- 
cluding art, drama and music. 
Previous Governor's Honors Pro- 
grams have been held at the Uni- 
versity of Southwestern Louisi- 
ana in Lafayette and at North- 
east State College in Monroe. 

Those desiring further infor- 
mation may contact Dr. Carlucci 
at the NSC Music Department.

Mc Gee Takes Stand 
At SGA Conference 

"We are not the SDS." With 
that quote Fred McGee, chair- 
man of the fledgling Student Act- 
ion Committee began his presen- 
tation of the aims and policies 
of the much talked about SAC 
to the Student Government Asso- 
ciation Monday night. 

"We are in no way affiliated 
with the Students for Democrat- 
ic Society organization and don't 
plan to become affilliated eith- 
er," MaGee told the meeting. 

Speculation on campus had 
linked the two organizations to- 
gether since McGee and other 
members of the SAC were rebuf- 
fed by the administration in their 
efforts to obtain a SDS charter 
earlier this month. 

McGee said that the purpose of 
SAC was to communicate for 
the students and with the stud- 
ents to the administration. 

Members of the SGA quizzed 
McGee as to why the Student Ac- 
tion Committee was necessary at 
all in this respect, asking why 
prospective members of the com- 
mittee could not work on vari- 

ous SGA committees and bring 
these problems to the SGA. 

"Isn's this what the SGA is 
for?" asked senior class secre- 
tary-treasurer Scotty Maxwell. 

McGee stated that the SAC 
could reach the students better 
because "we are mere students 
just like them." 

A resolution calling for the 
SGA not to complete against oth- 
er organizations on campus in 
the annual Christmas Festival 
was adopted. The group had stud- 
ied the feasibility of hiring a 
professional group from Lake 
Charles handle the building of 
an SGA float for the Christmas 
Festival parade. 

Maxwell told the meeting the 
Inter-Fraternity Council had re- 
ceived three bids for fixing the 
car was on Chaplain's Lake and 
said a final decision would come 
soon on who would be given the 

SGA president Henry Burns al- 
so reported that the project had 
been appointed to a coordinating 
board established recently by 
David Iscenhower. 

Tfir, £,A.Ciii,vu ana versatile sound of the heralded Town Criers comes to Prather Coliseum Tuesday 
night as the Northwestern Student Government Association presents the third show in this semester's 
big, name entertainment series. The Town Criers have delighted audiences at more than 150 colleges 
and universities with their dynamic performances. Standing ovations and "rave" reviews have followed 
their shows everywhere. By popular demand they have performed before the last three S.U.S.G.A. 
annual conferencs. This self-contained act consist? of four handsome, well-rounded gentlemen who are 
brilliant entertainers and singers. Bill Patterson, Ron Stephenson, Jim Moody and Ed Wing compose the 
group. Each has a different background, personality and approach to his music, but together they 
blend into a splendid array of musical talent.

On Consideration 

Students and administrators, on and off the campus, in 
the Student Government Room and in private offices have 
ventured statements as to what they considered to be at the 
base of current problems on the campus. 

Many point the finger of scorn toward certain activist 
groups, panty raiders, loafers, and even service organiza- 
tions. The dining hall, served by SAGA, has even been repre- 
manded for supposedly poor service, the monitors have been 
blamed for exerting too little influence, and the administra- 
tion has even been blamed for the presence of garbage on the 
parking lots. The real problem however lies in the attitudes 
of the students 

On the campus, students seem to have gone out of their 
way to make life miserable for themselves. A casual glance 
over Iberville or St. Denis Dining Halls after a noon meal 
reveals a virtual disaster area as anguished workers peer 
over piles of trays, food, napkins, and cigarette butts. Din- 
ing hall service is further hampered by students who decide 
to use the Student Union for recreation. Many students even 
brag about how long they have tied up a table while others 
are looking for a place to sit. Some are even forced to leave 
their trays or be late to classes. 

The parking lots are a prime example of this pervasive 
lack of consideration, boasting dead smashed squirrels in 
the winter and fish heads in the summer, not to mention 
beer cans and bottles of every description. 

Even a casual walk across the campus might reveal dead 
rats hanging dead by wires around their chests, a sight to 
make any normally squemish girl gag. 

Neither are the dormitories themselves free of this un- 
healthy competition. Especially in the men's dormitories, 
janitors are forced to clean up rooms cluttered with every 
imaginable type of garbage. The third of the campus popula- 
tion which would flunk out anyway causes another quarter of 
the school to fail by dint of noise and nuisance. As a result, 
lives are cut short of their full college potential by this din. 

Not only do men bother others unitentionally, but they 
shove themselves into matters which are simply none of 
their business. This was evidenced in a memorandum circula- 
ted by the president of the college last week prohibiting har- 
assing phone calls. Other activities are also participating in 
such as hair-cutting, bed-greasing and the like. 

Some boys also seem to be afraid to let the girls rest in 
peace and have been involved in an all-campus panty raid 

which not only interrupted the study hours of many students 
but sent several innocent persons to the Natchitoches Par- 
ish jail. 

The problem of lack of consideration for others is one 
that runs to the core of life on this campus,shaping the 
student experience into something far short of what it should 
be. The problems of a clean campus, chorter lines at mealtime 
and general coexistence can be- solved only if every student 
takes upon himself the responsibility of the whole campus, 
making sure that he himself does not trample on the rights 
of others. 



Relevant Issues 

by Henry Burns 
SGA President 

Today the college generation 
is becoming more concerned with 
its student problems. Because of 
the pressure and demands of so- 
ciety, the student can no longer 
seek a position of isolation. He 
is involved whether he likes it 
or not. More and more students 
are waiting to be a part of the 
decision making that directly 
concerns them. This is an innate 
desire — a cornerstone of Ameri- 
can democracy. 

Students are demanding more 
freedoms from the elements that 
"suppress" them. De we deserve 
more freedom as responsible stu- 
dents'? Yes. 

Next, let's look at the process 
of attaining the desired goals. 
Should it be done through or- 
derly, intelligent, logical prepara- 
tion of the democratic process 
or through confusion, 'innocent" 
indoctrination, and camouflaged 
aims. Is this process going to be 
one of evolution or revolution. 
Then comes the age-old question, 
do the ends justify the means? 

What does Northwestern State 
College have in the area of stu- 
dent representation, and in the 
realm of channeling student de- 
mands and needs to the adminis- 
tration The Student Govern- 

AUSA Group 
Names Leaders 

The college's chapter of the 
Association of the United States 
Army has elected new officers 
for the coming year. 

The chapter, known as the 
Robert E. Sylvest Company, has 
as its company commander Cadet 
William Cavanaugh of Leesville. 

Executive Officer for the organ- 
ization is Cadet Lt. Michael Fon- 
ger of Baton Rouge. Cadet Capt. 
Malcolm Kirsop of Shreveport is 

Cadet Capt. Larry Rivet of New 
Orleans is first sergeant of the 
group, and Cadet Lt. Louis Duet 
of New Orleans is parliamen- 

Serving as faculty advisor for 
the chapter is Maj. Clifford J. 
Eby of the school's Reserve 
Training Corps. 

The purpose of the Association 
of the United States Army is to 
build patriotism and military 
bearing, and to make better 
officers and citizens o f its 

ment Association is designed to 
handle the govermental functions 
of the Student Body. The stu- 
dents which serve on this policy 
making body have been selected 
by the students of NSC. 

What then could render this 
group as ineffective for the prob- 
lems of the students of NSC- Two 
hings: (1) lack of concern and 
lack of initiative on the part of 
the SGA members themselves; 
and (2) unwillingness on the 
part of the students to come to 
SGA with its problems. If the 
first is true then I along with 
the SGA can take the blame. If 
the second, one must remember 
that the burden of responsibility 
falls not only on the elected but 
on the electorate. 

By what means and to what 

extent should the college com- 
munity be regulated by its citi- 
zens? Who is to protect the aca- 
demic atmosphere of the college 
campus? One would be naive in- 
deed to consider the decisions of 
the administration to be all good 
or all bad. One would be equally 
naive to prejudge such decisions 
without full knowledge of the 
extenuating circumstances. How- 
ever, all too often, this is the 

It is absurd to reject the pre- 
sent means of communication 
(SGA) without a concerted effort 
to work within this framework. 
Only those who try these routes 
first can be considered blame- 
less if desruption of the system 

Minutes of SGA } 

Burns called the meeting to order. 
Burns led the group in prayer which 
was then followed by the pledge of 
allegiance. The minutes were dispenc- 
ed with. Roll was called, absent was 

Burns welcomed Kevil back and wish- 
ed him continued good luck with the 
Student Service Committee. Kevil 
thanked the SGA for the flower and 
get well card which he received while 
in the hospital. 

Marmillion reported that he is work- 
ing with the Freshman Associates to 
push publicity on the campus. 

Burns reported that letters were 
sent to all past Student Body Presidents

Martin inquired about the flags to 
be hung in the student Union. It 
was reported that the United States 
flag, the Northwestern State College 
flag and the Louisiana state flag would 
be obtained. 

Fred McGee was introduced as z\ 
spokesman for the Student Action 
Committee which is an organization 
seeking recognition on the campus. 
McGee read the preamble of the SAC 
constitution to the group. The prime 
motive of the organization is to com- 
municate with the faculty and the ad- 
ministration for the students. They 
want to be honest and direct and work 
for the students. Questions were asked 
and answers followed. McGee stated 
that the problem was lack of com- 
munication among students. 

McCollum reported that the Chamber 
of Commerce had asked us to partici- 
pate in the Christmas Parade. A float 
could be made available which was al- 
ready built for $135. 

Kevil offered a resolution that a 
float not be entered in the Christmas 
Parade due to the funds required and 
the competition which would result 
with other groups on the campus. 
Seconded by Nickerson. Question by 
Rispoli. Resolution carried. 

Rispoli inquired about the car wash, 
Maxwell reported that estimates had 
been made and would be reported 

Burns reported that the Louisiana

of Shreveport. 

Titanium alloys are used ex- 
tensively in aerospace, jet en- 
gines and airframe, marine uses, 
petrochemicals and chemical pro- 
duction, petroleum refining and 
papermaking. It is employed 
wherever extremes of heat and 
cold, corrosive attack, fatigue and 
other enemies of ordinary metals 
are encountered. 

Northwestern has joined the 
aerospace industry, the aeronau- 
tics industry and several major 
universities which are already 
conducting research on the prob- 
lem of cracking in titanium al- 

Bissell and the graduate stu- 
dents at Northwestern are using 
electro-chemical techniques to 
determine the causes of cracking. 

Titanium is being considered 
for use in the supersonic trans- 
port planes, and Bissell said it 
is vital to know the behavior of 
the material under various con- 

Peace Corps College Degree 
Program Extended, Expanded 

The officials of the Peace Corps 
and the State University of New 
York College at Brockport an- 
nounced completion of arrange- 
ments for continuing and extend- 
ing the unique Peace Corps/Col- 
lege Degree Program to admit 
a third group of cadindates in 
June, 1969. 

The members of the first con- 
tingent completing the fifteen- 
month program wihch combines 
the upper division undergraduate 
education with Peace Corps prep- 
aration are now serving on bi- 
national educational development 
teams in the Dominican Repub- 
lic; the second group is now in 
the academic year phase of this 
joint project and is slated for 
overseas assignment in Latin A- 
merica in August, 1969. 

The candidates will be selected 
from the ranks of students in 
good standing at an accredited 
college who are completing their 
sophomore or junior year by June 
1969. Those selected will be able 
to earn a B.A. or B.S. degree 
and be eligible for a Peace Corps 
assignment in one academic year 
flanked by two summers of fully 
subsidized and lintegrated aca- 
demic couses and Peace Corps 
training. They will be expected 
to major in mathematics or the 
sciences; those who have com- 
pleted their junior year prior 
to entrance into the program 
will have the opportunity for 
a double-major. 

At the end of the second sum- 
mer armed with the degree, a 
teaching license, in depth cross 
cultural preparation and fluency 
in Spanish the graduates as 

Peace Corps volunteers will be 
off on their Latin American as- 
signment. As members of the 
staffs of teacher training insti- 
tutions and/or consultants to sec- 
ondary teachers of mathematics 
or science, they will be important 
participants in the educational 
development efforts of their 
host countries. During their two 
year sojourn they will have the 
opportunity to earn up to twelve 
semester hours graduate credit. 

Peace Corps and college offi- 
cials pointed out the sevesal 
features which made this program 
unique including: academic credit 
for Corps training, two fully sub- 
sidized summer sessions totalling 
thirty semester credit hours, in- 
depth Peace Corps training 
synchronized with the liberal 
arts and specialized professional 
preparation, individualized pro- 
gramming, opportunity for double 
majors and supervised overseas 
graduate work. 

"This intergrated program based 
on our two fold conviction that 
to combine the college and Peace 
Corps experiences is to make 
both more relevant and mean- 
ingful and the personal product 
more valuable, and to provide 
much-needed skilled specialists — 
mathematics and science teachers 
— as Peace Corps volunteers in 
Latin America is to make a 
significant contribution to all 
concerned," said President Albert 
Warron Brown, of the State 
University College at Brockport 
in announcing the extension of 
this unique partnership.

Dedication Set For 
New BSU Building 

Formal dedication ceremonies 
for the recently-completed Bap- 
tist Student Union at the col- 
lege have been scheduled for 
Nov. 17. 

During the ceremonies, the 
building will be officially named 
the G. Kearnie Keegan Baptist 
Student Union. 

Keegan, a Northwestern gradu- 
ate, was pastor of the First Bap- 
tist Church in Natchitoches for 
several years and was director of 
the Southwest Baptist Student 
Unions at the time of his death. 

Featured speaker for the e- 
vent will be Mrs. Keegan, his 
widow. Dr. James E. Carter of 
the First Baptist Church in 
Natchitoches will serve as mas- 
ter of ceremonies. President 
Arnold R. Kilpatrick of North- 
western will also take part in 
the dedication. 

Built at a cost of some $200, 
000, the facility is located on the 
block fronting College Avenue 
between North and Lee Streets, 
directly across from the North- 
western campus. 

The building is owned by the 
District Eight Baptist Conven- 
tion, which is comprised of the 
Baptist churches in Natchitoches, 
Red River, DeSoto and Sabine 
parishes. It is operated by the 
District Eight Baptist Conven- 
tion and the Louisiana Baptist 

Featuring French Chateau ar- 
chitecture and split-level con- 
struction, the faculty includes a 
chapel seating 350, a lounge area, 
recreation and dining area, of- 
fices, kitchen, council room, li- 
brary, prayer room and an ef- 
ficiency apartment. 

Miss Myra Gulledge, BSU di- 
rector at Northwestern for 16 
years, said the building provides 
ample space to meet the growing 
needs of the college, which has 
some 3,000 Baptist preference 

One college does more 
than broaden horizons. It 
sails to them, and beyond. 

Now there's a way for you to know 
the world around you first-hand. 
A way to see the things you've 
read about, and study as you go. 
The way is a college that uses the 
Parthenon as a classroom for

Homecoming Tilt Promises To Be Decisive 

Loser Can Forget 
GSC Championship 

Tony Papa Loses 
Yardage For First 
Time This Year 

Tough Tony Papa lost yardage 
for the first time this year against 
the defense of McNeese in last 
week's game. The talented sopho- 
more halfback from Shreveport 
went through six straight games 
before being stopped behind the 
line of scrimmage, but Saturday 
night Papa was thrown for a two- 
yard loss. 

However, the quick, 16o-pound 
muscle, still leads the Demons in 
rushing with 341 yards and a 4.9 
yards a carry in his first season 
of college competition. 

While Papa continued to pace 
the infantry, senior quarterback 
Don Guidry pilfered the Cowboy 
defense for 12 completions in 
22 passes, good for 241 yards and 
two touchdowns. His usual fine 
performance raised Guidry's 
season totals to 75 strike* in 166 
throws for 1,190 yards and 13 
touchdowns — all records at 

Coach Gleen Gossett said of 
Guidry, "Don is the best quarter- 
back in the conference. Post 
season honors come on the basis 
statistics but for my money 
Guidry is the cookst and smartest 
quarterback in the league. He 
always gets the job done effi- 
ciently. He is a pleasure to coach 
because of his good sense and 
ability to learn quickly." 

Al Phillips, the Demon's fine 
sophomore split end, was on the 
receiving end of Guidry's two 
scoring tosses. This raised his 
totals to 24 catches good for nine 
touchdowns. Tight end Steve 
Gaspard caught five passes 
against the Cowboys and has 
raised his receptions to 20. 

Gossett also had praise for 
offensive tackle Shelley Dickie 
He stated, "Shelley played the 
best game of his college career." 

Trueman Enters 
Lone Star Meet 

Demon distance rumner, Paul 
Trueman is competing today in 
Houston, Texas, at the Gulf Fed- 
eration Meet. The meet is spon- 
sored by the National Colligate 
Athletic Association. 

Trueman along with head 
coach John Thompson left for 
the Lone Star city yesterday. 

The junior runner has re- 
cently set a NSC cross country 
course record with a time of 17:40 
on a 3.8 mile trek. 

Trueman will be u|p against 
top runners from all over Texas 
and Southern Louisiana. Includ- 
ed in the race will be men from 
McNeese and the University of 
Southwestern Louisiana. John 
McDonald will be representing 
USL in the meet and according 
to Trueman, will be tough to beat. 

McDonald will be a big threat 
to Paul during the GSC race in 
Hammond on December 7. 

In five outings Trueman has 
takein five first places. 


"HOLD 'EM COWBOY!" an unidentified McNeese player might be 
saying to his teamate as he towers above Tony Papa. Papa gained 
52 yards on 16 carries but was dropped for a loss for the first time 
this season. 

Defensive Position Well Taken 
Care Of By Senior Randy Tate 

"I like defense better," said De- 
mon defensive end Randy Tate 
when he was asked which he 
would rather play. Tate, a pro- 
duct of El Dorado High School, 
played fullback in his prep days 
and has carried the pigskin dur- 
ing his career at Northwestern. 

Randy noted that defensive 
players do mot get the recogni- 
tion that some offensive players 
do but when a defensive man 
makes a mistake it may show up 
on the scoreboard. 

Tate stands 5' 8" and weighs 
185. He participated in football, 
baseball and track in high school. 
He currently owns under 10.4 
speed in the hundred. 

Six of Tate's eight tackles were 
made behind the line in the De- 
mon win against McNeese last 
week. Tate was named captain of 
the defensive team last week al- 
though linebacker Lester Latino 
calls the defensive sets. 

"Our spirit grows each game," 
Tate stated, "we get used to each 
other's capabilities and can work 
closer together." 

Tate has beein hampered by a 
dislocated elbow but he said it 
is now operational. Head coach 
Glenn Gossett said, "Randy real- 
ly shouldn't have played in the 
Northeast or La. Tech game but 
he always shows a tremendous 
desire to be in the game and we 
need him." 

The good off-tackle play rates 
as one of the toughest for him- 
self according to Tate. The De- 
mon defensive liine is not large 
and must rely on good, quick 
penetration instead of using bulk 
to clog the holes. 

"USL is probably quicker than 
any other team we have faced. 
They like to run to the outside 

Randy Tate 

and pass," Randy noted. 

As usual Tate will have his 
hands full but he expressed a 
quite confidence that he could do 
the job in the 1968 homecoming 
game, and help the Demons to a 
Gulf States Conference champ-

"It's the same song; second verse," commented Coach 
Glenn Gossett, "we had to win last week to stay in the Gulf 
States Conference race and we have to win this week." 

Gossett's quote tells the whole story as Southwestern's 
Bulldogs invade Northwestern's home grounds for the 1968 
homecoming game scheduled for 2:30 tomorrow. Both teams 
enter the contest with 2-1 conference records which puts 
them in a tie for second nlace behind Northeast. Northeast 
leads with a 3-1 mark and' have only one GSC game remain- 
ing, that with Louisiana Tech. 
The Ragin Cajuns bowled over ance, "the finest of his college 

ninth ranked Arkansas State last 
week, 20-9. The win gave them 
an overall 6-2 record while North- 
western was hiking their record 
to 5-2 with an important GSC 
victory over McNeese. 

NSC aind USL have two of the 
GSC's most productive offenses 
and the result could be a high 
scoring battle. The NSC attack- 
ers have averaged 30 points a 
game while USL has lit up the 
scoreboard for a 25 point norm. 
Roussel, Barton Lead 

A pair of junior threats, 
George Roussel and Jim Barton, 
lead the offense for the explosive 
'Dogs. Quarterback Roussel is the 
team's second leading rusher with 
286 yards. He has thrown for 980 
stripes this year. Barton, a tail 
back, heads up the ground at- 
tack with 514 yards in 109 car- 
ries. He leads the GSC in scoring. 

USL will bring into the game 
the most versatile offense that 
the Demons have seen this year. 
They hove multiple offensive 
sets and use the drop-back and 
sprint-out passes. Their offense 
is similar to Northwestern's 
balanced attack. 

Healthy Backfield 

For one of the few times this 
season the Demon starting back- 
field will be healthy aind ready 
to go. Don Guidry's aerial show 
— featuring Al Phillips and Steve 
Gaspard — will be balanced by the 
running of halfbacks Tony Papa 
and Vic Nyvall. The clutch run- 
ning and blocking of Richard 
Ware at the fullback slot rounds 
out the dangerous backfield. Pa- 
pa is the team's ground leader 
with 341 yards— just under five 
yards a clip— while Nyvall is the 
biggest break-away threat. 

The Demon's offensive line 
turned in a fine effort last week 
and several members of the often 
un-publicized group had out- 
standing games. Gossett called 
tackle Shelley Dickie's perform- 

career." Guards David Centanni 
and Kenny Ferro also turned in 
aggressive games. 

Lighter, Quicker Defense 
USL has a speedy but small 
defense which is in stride with 
the characteristics of the Demon 
defenders. Both teams are scor- 
ing at productive clips and it will 
be up to the defense of both 
teams to stem the tide. 

Like their offense, the Bull- 
dogs' defense has many sets. They 
run out of a split and wide-tackle 
six although they blitz frequent- 
ly and will move to a four man 
front. The secondary plays a zone 
most of the time with a four 
deep coverage. Five players ro- 
tate to form the four deep mem. 

Adding difficulty to the tough 
job the Demon defense will face 
in the tfdented toe of South- 
western's kicking specialist Roy 
Pendergraft. The sophomore set 
a new GSC record in field goal 
kicking last year with 10 and has 
kicked 5-15 this year. Pendergraft 
is 22-23 in the PAT department 
and has scored 37 points. 
Sellout Expected 
A sellout crowd of 11,500 is ex- 
pected to be on hand to watch 
the developments as Northwest- 
ern and Southwestern try and 
catch Northeast for the GSC lead. 
A loss by either team would vir- 
tually eliminate them from any 
chance of a share of the GSC 

Northwestern was not expect- 
ed to even be in the running for 
the top spot in pre-season predic- 
tions as most experts picked the 
fighting Demons to fill the fourth 
position in the conference. 

Gossett answered the question 
as to how the Demons have put 
themselves in a position to cap- 
ture a championship by saying, 
"It is a pleasure to coach boys 
who are willing to pay the hard 
price of playing college football. 
The 1968 Demons have been will- 
ing to pay that price."

basketball games. 

Nyvall Returns To AII-GSC 
Form In Crucial McNeese Tilt 

A freak shoulder seperation 
may hurt Vic NyvalFs chances 
for repeating as an All-Gulf Con- 
ference halfback, but the North- 
western ace is still one of the 
league's most dangerous backs. 

Nyval, who had his shoulder 
knocked out of place at the end 
of a 56-yard kickoff return again- 
st Tennessee Tech in the Demon's 
second game, flashed his old 
form last Saturday night against 
MCNeese and moved into second 
pice among NSC ball carriers. 

Versatile Vic, playing with his 
shoulder in a brace after it was 
injured three wteeks ago against 
Louisiana Tech, led the North- 
western ball carriers with 54 
yards in a crucial 28-12 win again- 
st McNeese. Nyvall has gained 
274 yards this season in some- 
what limited action due to the in- 

In addition to making several 
key runs— including a three-yar- 
der for the Demon's final touch- 
down— Nyvall caught three passes 
raising his total to eight on the 
season. Vic racked up 70 yards 
on three catches which were all 

caught over the middle on half- 
back delay patterns. The first 
catch was good for 52 yards on a 
third-and-11 situation during the 
first time consuming drive. 

The McNeese contest was the 
first game since early in the 
season in which all four starters

The McNeese Cowboys fell to 
the finesse of the fighting 
Demons Saturday night in a 
decision maker for the GSC with 
a score of 28-12. The win for 
Northwestern knocked out all 
hopes of the Cowboys regaining 
their GSC crown from last year. 
At the same time Northwestern 
put themselves in a tie for second 
with Southwestern. 

Signal caller Don Guidry, 
working behind a powerful 
offensive line led the Purple and 
White to their seventh win 
against the Pokes in the 18 game 

Guidry and his gridders ram- 
bled 77 yards for their first TD 
drive which ended with Richard 
Ware going over from the one. 
Rusty James made it 7-0 with a 
good PAT with 7:09 left in the 
first period. 

Late in the same quarter Larry 
Grissom gave the Cowboys six 
when he plowed through the 
Demon defense into the end zone 
from the three. The Pokes PAT 
man, Wayne LaGrappe, who is 
17 for 17 for the season, received 
a bad snap and was smothered

by Demon Kenny Callens, giving 
the Demons a 7-6 edge. 

Midway through the second 
period the Purple and White 
organized a 80 yard drive which 
lasted only five plays. It came to 
an abrupt ending when Guidry 
connected with split end Al 
Phillips for a 42 yard TD pass 
play. Again Rusty James booted 
the football accurately making 
the score 14-6 NSC. 

Minutes later the Demons took 
over again after the Cowboys 
were forced to punt, putting the 
ball on Northwestern's own 20 
yard line. With Demon offensive 
line running over the Pokes 
defense, the Northwestern ground 
crew went into action. Halfback 
Tony Papa scrambled 11 yards 
and Vic Nyvall added four. 

Two plays later Dandy Don 
found Phillips again for a 27 
yard gain. Papa added three yards 
on two sucessive runs before 
Guidry fired another hot one to 
Phillips for 12 more yards and a 
first down on the Cowboys 21. 

Switching receivers, the senior 
from Church Point connected 
with end Steve Gaspard for 13 
more treasured yards. Then

after one unsuccessful try, Guidry 
hit Phillips for the payoff. James' 
third straight conversion made 
it 21-6 at the break. 

The favored Cowboys out 
hustled the Demons on the ground 
with 164 yards rushing against 
Northwestern's 132, but McNeese 
quarterback Ricky Miller couldn't 
stay with the aerial antics of 
NSC's all time career passing 
leader, Guidry. 

Guidry racked up 241 yards in 
the air against Miller's 104. 
Nyvall led the Demons on the 
ground with 54 yards in 16 tries 
with Papa right behind him with 
52 on the same number of 

Late in the third period the 
Demons drew blood again, for 
the final time of the contest. 
Again it was Guidry leading the 
way, completing a 19 yarder to 
Gaspard and firing to Nyvall for 
30. Ending the drive, Nyvall went 
in from the three. 

McNeese got it's second and 
final TD with 14:11 left in the 
game. End Gene Nicko accecpted 
a 17 yard pitch from second team 
quarterback, Chan Daigle, to give 
the Cowboys another lone six 
points. The Pokes two point 
conversion attempt failed leaving 
the score 28-12, Northwestern. 

There were two Northwestern 
records broken as a result of 
Saturday night's game. Don 
Guidry's two touchdown pitches 
gave him 13 for the season, a 
school record. Also Al Phillips' 
two TD catches gave him a recard 
of nine for the season.

in a funds drive to secure $1,300 
to purchase Christmas decorations 
for the building. 

Heading up the effort as chair- 
man of the committee is Winnie 
Darphin of Baton Rouge. So far 
under this leadership, the drive 
resulted in the accumulation of 
$675 toward the goal. 
The leading contributor so far has 
been the Blue Key National Honor 
Fraternity which donated $500. 

Other organizations which have 
contributed are: Phi Delta Kappa, 
Phi Epsilon Kappa, Pi Omega Phi, 
Alpha Sigma Alpha, and one 
member of the faculty. 

According to Jerry Wilson, 
chairman of the Student Union, 
the decorations will be for the 
purpose of bringing some genu- 
ine Christmas spirit to the cam- 

Wilson pointed that the real 
work on the project had been per- 
formed by members of the decora- 
tions committee which is com- 
posed of Winnie Darphin, chair- 
man, Lucy Pringle, Guien Terrel, 
Cheri Beebe, Jerry East, and Gary 

The theme of the decorations 

is to have five giant building 
front decorations mounted in an 
appropriate application to the 
front side of the Student Union 
building. The giant decorations 
will be followed up with matching 
colored lights and garland string- 
ers completely outlining the en- 
tire rooftop and a two-thirds por- 
tion on each side of the building, 
exuding an enormous skyline and 
canopy effect. 

Wilson urges all organizations 
on the campus to participate in 
this charity program.

The TKE Victory Bell Tradi- 
tion was begun this fall here at 
NSC, The large plantation bell is 
mounted on a Roman chariot-type 
cart along with a regulation po- 
lice siren and battery. This bell 
was purchased from the De La 
Houssaye Plantation near Jack- 
son, Mississfppi, where ft was 
used for many years to call work- 
ers and slaves from the fields. 
After the plantation was closed, 
the bell hung from its perch in 
a native Bois Arc tree until it 
was purchased and restored to its 
original condition by Tau Kappa 
Epsilon Fraternity. This relic has 
made appearances at all football 
games and pep rallies this semes- 
ter, and will be on display at the 
homecoming game this Saturday.

Nurses To Attend 
Annual Meet 

NSC nursing students are pre- 
paring to attend the annual con- 
vention of Louisiana Association 
of Student Nurses (LASN). 

The convention will be held in 
the Captain Shreve Hotel, Shreve- 
port, the week-end of November 

Students at the convention 
elect state officers, socialize, dis- 
cuss more efficient methods of 
patient care, and listen to addres- 
ses on current, vital topics. 

Speakers for the convention 
include experienced registered 
nurses; a psychiatrist from the 
Veteran's Administration; and 
the national student nurse presi- 
dent, Flo Huey, a student at 

The student nurses will hear 
addresses about the leprosy col-

A new project of LSN, 'Break 
Through',' will be discussed. This 
project is designed to draw 
minority groups into nursing.

state organization. 

They are Gaynell Pilcher, 
president, and Pam Hebert, vice 

Every school in the state is en-

nurses always strive for is better 
patient care.

DANCING TO THE TUNE of "When the Saints Go Marching In", 
at the State Fair Game is Liz Koury of Leesville, a member of the 
Mademoiselles Dance Group. The Mademoiselles perform at all the 
Demon football games. 

Mademoiselles Excite 
Half time Spectators 

by Karen Allen 
Current Sauce Reporter 

Demon fans have been delight- 
ed this year not only with a suc- 
cessful football season but by the 
appearance of the newly formed 
dance line, the Mademoiselles. 
Composed of 15 talented NSC co- 
eds, the Mademoiselles have en- 
ertained the half-time audiences 
to such numbers as "When The 
Saints Go Marching In", "Thor- 
oughly Modern Millie", "Up, Up 
And Away", and "Charade". 

The Mademoiselle line, which 
began in the minds of Garland 
Riddle and Mrs. Ray Schexnider 
last spring, became reality in 
early September. Mrs. Schexnid- 
er, choreographer for the line, 
began the Mademoiselles and has 
continued with them on a rigor- 
ous schedule of five practice days 
a week. 

The girls, ranging in height 
from 4'10" to 5'8", begin with 
basic black leotard s and add 
multi-colored vests and top hats 
for a Dixieland effect, fringed 

shifts and slouch hats to capture 
the feeling of the twenties, or 
other apparel to set the pace of 
each tune. They dance with bal- 
loons, top hats, umbrellas, and 
canes. This extra equipment re- 
quires time to master adding 
practice hours to their lengthy 

For the homecoming game 
Saturday afternoon the Mademoi- 
selles have put together a sassy 
rendition of "Hello Dolly" using 
parasols to carry out the theme 
of the lively musical. 

Future plans for the Mademoi- 
selles are somewhat undecided 
although they are sure to prove 
promising. With the close of foot- 
ball season the Mademoiselles 
will also close their performing 
season and begin work on next 
fall's shows. 

Tryouts are being planned for

One-Hour Martinizing Cleaners 

Broadmoor Shopping Center 

by Linda Towry 
Current Sauce News Editor 

One of the least known but 
most valuable facilities main- 
tained by the college is the Coun- 
seling and Testing Center, head- 
ed by Dr. Tandy W. McElwee. 
This department, located on the 
first floor of Caldwell Hall, per- 
forms a dual role in the college's 
student relations program. 

The counseling role is primary 
in the functions of the Counseling 
and Testing Center. Counselors 
are provided by the college to 
assist students with problems in 
the area of selection of a major 
and/or minor field of study, 
study habits, conflicting inter- 
ests, interpersonal relations with 
roommates and other dormitory 
residents, and more serious emo- 
tional or social problems. 

An important function of the 
counseling center is assisting stu- 
dents in the selection of careers. 
This is done by providing a stu- 
dent with information about him- 
self through the use of interest 
inventories, personality inven- 
tories, and apititude tests. All 
of these are administered, scored, 
and interpreted to the student as 
a service to students by the col- 

The Counseling and Testing 
Center also is the college's of- 
ficial testing center. In recent 
years, national programs which 

measure beginning freshmen's 
academic aptitude and achieve- 
ment have replaced the locally 
administered placement tests pre- 
viously used. It is the task of 
the testing center to determine 
from the new student's scores 
on the American College Testing 
Program tests, and their past 
scholastic record, what he may 
be axpected to achieve during his 
college career. From this infor- 
mation, students are placed in 
an appropriate level of classes in 
which he may expect to succeed. 

Placement tests are not the 
sole testing function of the cen- 
ter. Aptitude tests, achievement 
tests, personality diagnostic tests, 
and interest inventories are avail- 
able for students who wish in- 
formation in these areas. Addi- 
tionally, the center is an agent 
for several national testing pro- 
grams such as the Graduate Rec- 
ord Examinations, the Advanc- 
ed Test for Graduate Study in 
Business, and the Millers Ana- 
logy Test. The Center also ad- 
ministers many other tests on 
special requests of commercial 
and industrial firms which are 
interviewing prospective gradu- 
ates of NSC for employment. 

The Counseling and Testing 
Center's function is to provide 
service to the student body and

Cadets Selected 
As Distinguished 
R0TC Trainees 

Ten Army ROTC cadets from 
Northwestern have been chosen as 
Distinguished Military Students 
for the academic year. They are: 
Randall Jackson, James Living- 
ston, Fred Throgmorton, Larry 
Rivet, and Gus Bazin, all of Nat- 
chitoches; Everett Doubleday, 
Robert Smith, and Donnie Dur- 
ham, all of Shreveport; Mike 
Churchman, Colfax; and Louis 
Duet of New Orleans. 

Traditionally, Army ROTC has 
been a four-year program con- 
sisting of a two-year basic course, 
which is required at some schools, 
elective at others, and a two- 
year advanced course which is 
elective at all schools. 

The advanced course is nor- 
mally taken in the junior and 
senior years. Only students who 
have demonstrated a potential 
for becoming effective officers 
are selected for this training. 
The instruction includes mili- 
tary techniques, logistics, ad- 
ministration, teaching methods, 
leadership techniques, and the 
exercise of command. 

A six-week advanced course 
summer camp is held between 
tht junior and senior years at 
Ft. Sill, Okla. 

At the end of the junior year 
and prior to the advanced course 
summer camp, approximately 
one-third of each Junior ROTC 
class may be designated potential 
Distinguished Military Students. 
This is a competitive program 
which permits outstanding ROTC 
students to apply for a regular 
army commission immediately 
upon graduation. In order to be 
designated D.M.S., students must 
be in the upper one third of 
their military science class and 
upper one half of their college 

Carmen Opera Reviewed; 
Audience Is Unresponsive 

G. T. Spence 
Sauce Correspondent 

Friday night, the Goldovsky 
Grand Opera Theater brought to 
the Fine Arts Theatre a produc- 
tion of Georges Bizet's ever 
delightful "Carmen." 

"Carmen," a love story set in 
the times immediately after the 
downfall of Napoleon, is about 
a soldier, Don Jose, who falls in 
love with Carmen, a Gypsy girl. 

Outstanding in the cast was 
Carmen which was played by 
Debria Brown. When Carmen 
made her entrance in the first, 
the stage seemed to come alive 
for the first time. The lusty 
Carmen begins to weave her spell 
of love on Don Jose, a straight 
laced corporal. 

Miss Brown, while on the stage, 
seemed to take complete control 
of Don Jose, in addition to the 
audience. While she does love 
Don Jose, her feminity eventually 
comes to the fore and she turns 
to love another man, the torre- 
ador, causing Don Jose to kill her. 

Thomas O'Leary, Don Jose, 
failed to convey to the audience 
his true character, making it 
hard for the audience to grasp 
the full extent of his love for the 
girl. While that of Don Jose is 
probably the dryest of the parts, 
O'Leary failed to convey the 
character of a man scorned in 

The rest of the cast for the 
most part in this authors opinion 
a failure, with the exception of 
Escamillo and Pemendado and 
Dancairo. Micacla, a young girl 
adopted by Don Jose's mother 
was a bit too sugar-coated to be 
palatable while the rest of the 
cast was too facetious to add to 
the intrigues in the development 
of the story. 

From a Technical point o% 
view the set was beautiful. The 
three deminsional set which had 
excellent depth added much to 

Judicial Branch 
Adds Freshman 

Applications will be taken 
until the date of Nov. 22 for the 
position of Freshman judge on 
the judicial branch of the 
Student Government Association. 

According to Larry McCoilum, 
Chief Justice of the NSC Student 
Court, applications are to be 
made in writing and left in the 
student government office, room 
222 of the Student Union. 

The SGA will choose the 
student for the position from the 
avaible applications. 

the enjoyment of the imaginative 
viewer. The light crew also did an 
excellent job, especially in the 
night scene on the mountain. 

The music was still another 
problem. The orchestra at times 
seemed to have trouble keeping 
up with the performers, or for 
that matter even with themselves. 

The critical listener might 
recommend a gift of a book of 
rudimentary practices for the 
orchestra members and the young 
conductor. At times the singers 
did not project enough to be 
heard by even the closest 


Perhaps the most outstanding 
problem, as is often the case was 
the audience. The seats could 
generally be called vacant, even 
those few with people sitting in 
them. The most that could be 
said of the audience as a whole 
is that it was not responsive. 

Those students who neglected 
to opportunity are encouraged 
to do so at the next opportunity, 
for despite some obvious flaws, 
opera, and indeed any high level 
entertainment can be a wonder- 
ful experience. 

New Weapons Laws To Take Effect 

Detailed procedures for regis- 
tering machine guns, sawed-off 
shotguns, sawed-off rifles, silenc- 
er, deactivated wor trophys, and 
other destructive devices were 
announced today by B. Frank 
White, Regional Commissioner, 
Southwest Region. 

The Gun Control Act of 1968 
requires that weapons and devices 
of this type must be registered 
with the Internal Revenue Service 
by December 1. 

White said that copies of 
Registration Form 4467 are avail- 
able at Alcohol & Tobacco Tax 
and other IRS Offices. 

The forms are prepared in 
three copies, two of which should 
be mailed to the Director, Alco- 
hol and Tobacco Tax Division, 
Internal Revenue Service, Wash- 
ington, D. C. 20024. The third 

copy may be kept by he owner of 
the firearm or destructive device. 

Firearms or destructive devices 
should not be brought to an IRS 
office to be degistered, White 

Under the new law all firearms 
and destructive devices requiring 
registration must be identified 
by a serial number. If a firearm 
or device does not have a serial 
number, the owner should phone, 
visit, or write the nearest IRS 
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Office 
and a number will be assigned. 

After obtaining the number, 
the owner is responsible for af- 
fixing it to the firearm or device 
before completing the registra- 
tion form. Additional informa- 
tion may be obtained by contact- 
ing the nearest Alcohol and To- 
bacco Tax or other IRS office. 

NSC Bookstore 
Alters Policies 

New bookstore policies effec- 
tive for the Spring 1969 semester 
are listed below for the benefit 
of those students who may not 
be fully aware of the proper 
procedures for reselling books 
or cashing checks. 

Students who resign or drop a 
course within the first two weeks 
of the fall or spring semester, or 
the first week of the summer 
term may have their books re- 
purchased at the price for which 
the book will be resold. 

This will apply only: 

(1) To books that the price or 
bookstore coding has not been 
tampered with. 

(2) Then the student has the cash 
register receipt for the purchase 
of the text. 

(3) To books used in coures for 

which the student is currently 
enrolled as verified by his Deans 

The newly instigated check- 
cashing service will remain in 
effect as it now operates. Students 
may cash checks up to a $10 
limit, or they may cash a check 
$10 over the purchase price of an 
article from the bookstore.

Homecoming Is 
Biggest, Best; 
Ends In Defeat 

Stands crammed with cheering 
alumni, obsessed students, and 
wild college professors witnessed 
homecoming festivities as well as 
well omnipresent campus exhib- 
its and the defeat of the Demons 
Saturday afternoon. 

The story of the football side 
of the homecoming was reflected 
in the Sunday morning scene of 
battered exhibits scattered scat- 
tered across the campus by night 
rainfall. The entire scene seemed 
no more than a picture of the De- 
mons's shattered hopes. 

The day looked hopeful in the 
beginning, as the judges saunter- 
ed from display to display ren- 
dering studied decisions and 
reached a peak with the stadium 

The Homecoming Court was 
presented, composed of Queen 
Kathleen Budd, a sophomore kin- 
dergarden and primary education 
major from Opelousas, Elaine 
Sanders, Springhill; Linda Gayle 
Webb, DeRidder; Yvcmne Centan- 
ni, New Orlean; Beverly Clark, 
Shreveport; Carolyn Jean Adkins, 
Pineville; Sharon Mayfield, Dal- 
las, Tex.; Shirley Dickie, Natchi- 
toches; and Bette Brodnax, Alex- 

These were escourted by vari- 
ous members of the Letterman's 
Club down the field, along a row 
of Black Knights, and off of the 

Present also to witness the 
day's action was the Governor 
of the State of Louisiana, John J. 
McKeithen. The governor watch- 
ed the game and engaged in some 
conversation with Henry Burns, 
SGA President. 

Among the highlights in home- 
coming activities was the tradi- 
tional alumni barbecue, which 
was attended by hudreds of NSC 

The Babtist Student Union also 
sponsored a homecoming ban- 
quet attend by 84 alumni to in- 
troduce former members of the 
organization to a new building. 

As the day progressed, Wesley 
Foundation was announced the 
winner of the float competition. 
The weather was beautiful. Ever- 
ything seemed too good to be 
true. . . and it was.

Student Critics 
Spark SGA To 
Lively Session 

Kathleen Budd 

1968 Homecoming Queen 

By James Walker 
Current Sauce Managing Editor 

The Student Government As- 
sociation, in apparent effort to 
quite criticisms of "inactivity" 
and "do-nothingness", rammed 
home two resolutions calling for 
student forum type activities, set 
up an SGA sponsored book ex- 
change and came face to face 
with several other issues Monday 
night in its most active meeting 
of the semester. 

Failure of the SGA to take a 
definite stand on the October 31 
panty raid, mounting criticisms 
of the service and food in the 
dining halls and a new threat 
posed by leftist Student Action 
Committee all served to spur the 
SGA to the busy session. 

Student Services Committee 
Chairman Bruce Kevil presented 
a resolution creating a Free 
Speech Ally to be sponsored 
jointly by the SGA and the Poli- 
tical Science Club. 

As presented the resolution 
called for a certain time and 
place to be established each week 
where students may air their 
views on any and all issues. The 
SGA and the Political Science 
Club will provide moderators 
for each meeting.

Town Criers Delight Small Crowd 

By Jay Keppel 

The Town Criers came to Pra- 
ther Coliseum Tuesday night and 
brought with them their own 
form of risque entertainment. 
They ran the gamut of musical 
selections, and liberally spiced 
their repertoire with sharp wize- 
cracks and subtle limericks such 
as the "Tale of the Moose Goos- 

A relatively small crowd was 
on hand for the show, but they 
participated when the Criers ask- 
ed, and generally seemed to ap- 
preciate the group's offerings. 

As soon as the Criers appeared 
on stage, they promised the au- 
dience songs to please everyone's 
tastes, and they certainly lived 
up to that. During the evening 
such favorites as, "The Look of 
Love", "Up, Up and Away," "Go 
Away Little GirL" "Charade," 
"By the Time I Get to Phoenix," 
"Shenandoah," "When the Saints 
Go Marching In," and "To Dream 
the Impossible Dream" came 
forth in generous tones. 

The musicians' skills were not 
restricted to straight songs how- 
ever, and numbers such as the 
"Mono" song, a musical version 

of history, a simple lesson in 
how to remember chemical ele- 
ments, and a number of ballads 
about tht plights of such little 
thought of people as the "Stamp 
Lickers," "Moose Goosers," 
"Lunch Toters," and "Duck 
Pluckers" brought the best re- 
actions from the spectators. 

After the quick-paced show 
had ended, we went to the back 
of the dressing room to ask the 
group's members questions that 
they undoubtedly are faced with 
everywhere they perform. 

We were met at the door by 
a big man who doubles as the 
Criers' manager and airplane 
pilot. "They'll be out to talk in 
a minute men, a couple of them 
are still changing clothes for the 
flight back to Lexington tonight. 

A few minutes later we were 
standing in the hall between the 
Coliseum floor and the dressing 
room when one of the Criers 
came up and inquired how we 
had enjoyed the show. We as- 
sured him that it had been most 
enjoyable, particularly the bal- 

"Man I'm glad about that," he 
smiled, we got a little worried 

that we may have embarrassed 
someone out there with that stuff. 
We had been advised that this 
was a conservative school, stu- 
dents and administration, so we 
held out a lot of our really good 

What about the crowd's re- 

"Oh we thought that it was 
pretty good really. Everybody 
seemed to be with us. To bad 
we decided against doing our 
"Peyton Place" thing though, 
that would have gone over big 
with them I think." 

Was this your standard show? 

"Yes, this was our regular 
"conservative college" show. 
We've been working this night- 
club circuits recently, and we 
can be a bit more loose in our 
performance. But don't misun- 
derstand, we like college audienc- 
es best of all. They're the most 
polite, if they like you anyway. 
We enjoy doing concerts. You 
know some schools do not really 
have concerts, they go get a soul 
band, and everyone wants to 
dance. It winds up costing the

steadily increased his artistic 
eminence in apptarances across 
North America, in Europe, and 
in South America. This pianist 
is widely held as one of the out- 
standing pianists of his genera- 

Blonde-haired and handsome, 
the pianist might well have been 
a regular student and his affable 
but aloof manner immediately 
caught the attention of the aud- 

The outstanding characteristic 
of this and any other outstanding 
pianist is the movement of the 
fingers. Votapek's fingers skipped 
across the keyboard with an 
alacrity staggering to the imagi- 

The smootness of his pianis- 
simo's could convey almost any 
emotion, and as he bore down on 
the more assertive parts of the 
compositions, notes of discord, 
frankness, and command sounded 
without apology. 

The connection from hand to 
mind to keyboard seldom reaches 
the perfection that was heard 
and seen last night. 

Any pianist can play notes, 
even the hard ones, but it takes 
a master to bring an audience 
to its feet expressing its grati- 
tude for a wonderful experience. 

The New York Times commend- 
ed Votapek for his sensitivity 
and imagination. The New York 
Post noted his "dazzling virtuo- 
sity and dynamic projection." 
The London Times rated him as 
"a pianist of imagination and 

Whatever qualities it takes to 
make a pianist great, Votapek 
has it in abundant quantities, 
and the audience knew it. 

A further effort to achieve a 
more direct contact with the in- 
dividual student was apparent 
when a resolution calling for a 
definite telephone number to be 
established where a student might 
air his problems to members of 
the SGA was passed. 

Kevil explained that the "Dial- 
a-Problem" type operation was 
designed to help the SGA become 
more aware of the problems of 
the students. 

The book exchange motion 
which was designed mainly to 
eliminate the "middle man" in 
the resale of textbooks. 

According to the motion the 
student would take his book to 
a designated place and put an 
envelope with his name, dorm, 
phone number, NSC post office 
box and the price he wants for 
the book on it, inside the book. 

Books woujd be categorized 
and students could then select 
the book they want for the price 
they want to pay for it. When a 
student selects his book he would 
pay the cashier who would in 
turn put the money in the enve- 
lope that is with the book, keep 
the envelope and inform the ori- 
ginal owner that his book has 
been sold. 

A 25 cent charge would be ad- 
ded to the price the owner of 
the book was asking and would 
go to Circle K, the organization 
which will be in charge of the 

Kevil also reported that of 696 
students polled as to whether 
there should be a juke box ini 
the student union, 92 per cent 
indicated they favored having 
the juke box. Kevil also said that 
the managers of the student union 
were in agreement that this was 
a good cross section of the at- 
titudes of he students and a 
juke box will be placed in the 
student union in the near future.

The Sound of Silence 

The university in the 20th century is a organizational 
composite of different ideals, culture perspectives, religions, 
and energy levels which is faced with the problem of the 
apathetic majority on the one hand and the activist left on 
the other. 

Current concern, as George C. Wallace so amply put 
it is how to "speak for the silent majority" and how to cope 
with "rebels without a program." The Student Government 
Association, in its last meeting made attempts to move in 
that direction with the establishment of students forums in 
which large groups wight hash over campus problems and 
an action line in which students might bring even their 
smallest problems to the attention of the SGA by telephone. 
Spearheaded by President Henry Burns and Bruce Kevil, 
Chairman of the Student Services Committee, the measures 
are an attempt to break the walls of hostility and indifference 
between the SGA and the Student Body. 

Action by the SGA, it seems, is much to be preferred to 
the establishment of irresponsible pressure groups for the 
same purpose. The SGA was elected to represent student 
viewpoints to the administration and to work for the better- 
ment of the campus as a whole. If this purpose is not ful- 
filled, present officers should be informed, criticised, and 
defeated in spring elections. 

For the student who is opposed to present policies, there 
are clear cut alternatives: (1) To work for the election of of- 
ficers with views more amenable to their own, or (2) To ap- 
pear before the SGA with specific complaints about how 
affairs on the campus are conducted. 

The keynote of last year's election was "student power 
through student responsibility." It still holds that a group of 
persons interested in the student's welfare and known by 
the administration as responsible people can accomplish 
much more than a group of unofficial message carriers. 

Many students seem to be at a loss concerning potential 
vehicles of expression. Not only may they appear before the 
Student Government Association, but they may write let- 
ters to the Current Sauce; they may make use of the new SGA 
measures; and they may make use of the ballot in SGA elec- 

The question here is not whether or not the students 
can be heard, but whether or not the SGA and the adminis- 
tration of the college will be relieved of the duty of having 
to plumb the depths of the sounds of student silence in 
order to make their decisions. 

Campus tensions can never be ironed out until students 
learn to gripe effectively and through dependable channels. 

Vending Varmits 

Attention should at this time be called to the vending 
machines on campus which are currently being operated by 
Allen and Allen under the contract of the college. 

It has been the understanding of students that when 
contracts are let for the establishment of vending machines, 
the said machines should work. 

Hundreds of students and teachers alike who have at- 
tempted to buy items from the antiauated machines have 
lost money or have not received the drinks or foodstuffs. 

If the Allen and Allen Company continues to breach the 
contract in this manner, the contract should immediately be

Demon Marching Band Shows Wild, Proud Spirit 

BOB SMITH, director of bands, scans the field intently as his cht rges, 
dubbed the "Soul Band from Demonland," perform during halftime 
activities at last week's homecoming game. 

By Jay Keppel 

The rapid emergence of 
the Demon Marching Band 
during the 1968 football sea- 
son into a cohesive, proud 
and wildly spirited organiza- 
tion has been one of the most 
pleasant surprizes of the 
year. Whenever and wherev- 
er the "Soul Band from De- 
monland" has performed, 
they have won the hearts of 
the spectators and made be- 
lievers of the sceptics. 

During the three-year tenure 
of J. Robert Smith, director of 
bands, the unit has been trans- 
formed from a drab, lifeless mob, 
into the thriving machine which 
has entertained spectacularly 
throughout the football cam- 

Together with his two assist- 
ants, John R. Raush and Jerry R. 
Payne, the latter a graduate as- 
sistant who does not receive any 
pay for his services, Smith has 
brought the band through the 
third year of a five-year program 
to build a truly great organiza- 
tion, but he is quick to point out 
that the real credit for the huge 
success of the band this year must 
be given to the members them- 
selves. "If those kids weren't 
willing to get out there and make 
the sacrifices which they have 
so faithfully all along, we 
wouldn't get anywhere," he states 

The 145-member group sports 
many new features this year, in- 
cluding a ten-member color 
guard, more twirlers performing 
more unique routines, a 16-mem- 
ber dance line known as the 
"Mademoiselles," special musical 
selections featuring various sec- 
tions of the band, and dual drum 

Saturday's show will be the 
final one in the college career 
of Senior Doug Sullivan, who 
has been head drum major since 
1965. Junior Tommy Tynes will 
move up next year to fill the 
big void Sullivan's departure will 

Since a vast majority of the 
present bandsmen will be re- 
turning next season, Smith and 
his assistant expect to have a 
strong nucleus for his outfit. 
"I already have a stack of ap- 
plications in my office," Smith 
smiled, "and this is undreamed 
of. I have never gotten so many 
inquiries this early in the year." 
A spot check revealed that most 
were from high school students 
who had seen the Demon Band in 
action this season. However, stu- 
dents who are now enrolled at 
the college are also elligible to 
join the band. Those who may 
be interested are advised to pass 
by the Band Office in the Fine 
Arts Building. 

Serving this year as section 
heads are: Barbara Willis, who 
is also a junior lieutenant in the 

Band Council, flutes; Rick Lacy, 
clarinets; James Hooter, saxa- 
phones; Charles Horton, trump- 
ets; Glen Welman, French horns; 
Les Steele, band captain, trum- 
bones; Carolyn Donovan, bari- 
tones; Jimmy Green, a senior 
lieutenant, basses; and Steve 
Hitt, percussion. 

The halftime show for the 
Southeastern game tomorrow 
nigth is easily going to be the 
most daring and entertaining 
show that any Demon Band has 
ever attempted. It will feature 
all elements of the band, but 
will be spiced with unusual light- 
ing and sound effects. The band 
has worked as hard as ever on 
this show in order to make the 
season's finale the biggest suc- 
cess yet, and even had to schedule 
a night rehearsal Wednesday. 

The Demon Marching Band will 
close out the year with their an- 
nual appearance in the Natchito- 
ches Christmas Festival Parade 
on Dec. 7, and will then settle 
down to practicing for the begin- 
ning of the concert season. 

In February the band is sched- 
uled to make a return appear- 
ance in the colorful Parade of 
Rex on Mardi Gras Day in New 
Orleans. The unit made its ini- 
tial appearance in Rex this year, 
and was such a tremendous favo- 
rite with the crowd along the 
route, the Rex Krewe had anoth- 
er invitation extended almost be- 
fore the band had returned home.

Against Lions 

Demons Try to Equal 
Last Year's Record 

By Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Campus Editor 

The curtain falls tomorrow 
night on the 1968 football sea- 
son for host Northwestern and 
the Lions of Southeastern. NSC 
needs a win to keep slim hopes 
alive for a tie for the champion- 
ship in the Gulf States Conference 
and their second straight 6-3 
year under Glenn Gossett. Mc- 
Neese must whip heavily favor- 
ed Southwestern; La. Tech must 
pass their way past Northeast; 
and the Demons must beat the 
Lions, in order to produce a 
freak four way tie for the GSC 

Southeastern brings a 1-3 con- 
ference slate into the contest 
and is trying to get out of the 
cellar with McNeese. The Lions 
ran past the fading cowboys last 
Saturday 17-3 for their only GSC

against the Cowboys and com- 
pleted 4-6 passes in his first of- 
fensive action. Southeastern is 
expected to stay on the ground 
with Rosetti and leading Lion 
ground gainer Ted Glaser handl- 
ing most of the chores. 

Defensively, the Lions are giv- 
ing up 18 points a game. They 
have had their problems with 
the defensive line although a 
quick secondary has yielded op- 
posing quarterbacks only a 39 
per cent completion average. 

Winning Record 

A win is needed by the De- 
mons to stay above .500 in the 
league struggle. They are cur- 
rently in fourth place with a 2-2 
slate. The Purple and White has 
assured itself an overall winning 
record although two of its five 
have come against hapless La. 
College and Cameron State. The 
Demons beat co-GSC leader 
Northeast and McNeese for their 
two league wins. They have drop- 
ped decisions to La. Tech and 
the other co-leader, USL. 

Southeastern played the spoil- 
er role last year, preventing NSC 
ifrom attaining a tie for the 
championship. The Lions upset 
the Purple and White 26-14 last 
season and own a slight 15-13 
edge in the series record. 

Finale for Seven Seniors 

Seven seniors, Don Guidry, 
Ronnie Whatley, Kenny Ferro, 
David Centanni, Shelley Dickie, 
Don Mayf ield, and Jerry Mott will 
see their last action in Demon 
uniforms. All of the seniors have 
seen considerable duty during 
their careers and will be missed 
next year.

Don Bates Will Assist Basketball Squad USL Floors NSC Title Hopes 

Don Bates, a recent graduate 
of Louisiana College, was added 
to Northwestern's basketbball 
coaching staff last Monday. 

Bates has been given the duties 
of helping with the junior wars- 
ity team, scouting and recruit- 

He attended high school in 
Pineville, from which he gradu- 
ated in 1963. He then entered 
Louisiana College and received 
a degree in physical education 
last spring. 

Deemed "one of the top basket- 
ball players ever to play for Lou- 
isiana College," by Sports Infor- 
mation Director Oscar Hoffmey- 
er, Bates lettered four years in 
basketball as a guard. 

According to Hoffmeyer, he 
was fourth in career scoring with 
1,184 points. He played a total of 
85 games for an average of 13.9 
points per game. 

He was second in season scor- 
ing, racking up 496 points during 
the 1967-68 season with a game 
average of 21.6 points. 

As the team playmaker, Bates 
was described as an aggressive, 

outstanding player with tremend- 
ous knowledge of quarterback- 

Louisiana College's coach Billy 
Allgood said of Bates: "He de- 
veloped into the best all around 
basketball player during my ten- 

The "Ragin Cajuns" sneaked 
by the Demons last week 14-7 up- 
setting the Northwestern Home- 
coming and killing all hopes for 
a Demon GSC outright title. Now 
the Purple and White spuad can 
only look for a three way tie for 
first, which can only happen if 
Northwestern dumps Southeast- 
ern, La. Tech takes Northeast- 
ern, and the McNeese Cowboys 
overpower the USL Bulldogs. 

The loss gave Northwestern a 
2-2 conference record and a 5-3 
overall. The Bulldogs are now 
supporting a 3-1 GSC record and 
are 7-2 for the season. 

The Demons lone touchdown 
came late in the second quarter. 
Playmaker Don Guidry snatched 
a loose ball out of the air that 
was fumbled by halfback Tony 
Papa and then scampered 65 
yards for the touchdown. Rusty 
James added the PAT for the 
Demons last appearence on the 
scoreboard for the contest. 

Statistic wise Northwestern 
outdid the Bulldogs piling up 
400 yards for total offense ag- 
ainst the Cajuns 264 yards. 

Guidry was 17 for 47 in the air 
accounting for 191 yards passing. 
USL was scoreless until after 

the half, when they pieced to- 
gether a 50 yard drive in five 
plays for thier TD of the game. 
Fullback Ron English did the 
honors stepping off the final 23 
yards for the score. Southwest- 
ern's fine kicker, Roy Pender- 
graph tied the game 7-7 with his 
successful PAT. 

The Ragin Cajuns got thier 
chance when they recovered a 
fumble on the Demon 38 yard 
line. Eight plays later from the 
14, tailback Jim Barton broke 
away from two determined tack- 
lers and staggered into the end 
zone for the winning touchdown.

We're not in Shape"-Hildebrand 

Seven Seniors 
Make Final 

Seven seniors will be dressing 
out for the last time as a member 
of the Northwestern Demons 
when the Purule and White play 
their season finale tomorrow 
against Southeastern. 

Steady Don Guidry will be the 
only member of the backfield to 
finish his eligibilty. Guidry has 
performed sensationally during 
his four year career and is the 
winningest active college quar- 
terback in Louisiana. NSC 
owns a 25-10 record while Guidry 
has appeared on the playing field. 
He owns all the Demon passing 
records and has hit right at 50 
per cent during his three letter 
career. More than one pro team 
has shown interest in the chunker. 

Three offensive linemen, guards 
Kenny Ferro and David Cen- 
tanni and tackle Shelley Dickie, 
are due to play their last game 
Saturday. Centanni is a three- 
year letterman while Ferro and 
Dickie have earned two letters. 
Centanni and Dickie are being 
considered for post-season honors. 

Defensive ends Ronnie Whatley 
and Don Mayfield are also 
scheduled to see action for the 
last time while playing as a 
member of the Purple and White. 
Whatley, a product of El Dorado, 
Arkansas, has won three letters 
and has proven himself as an 
outstanding defensive player. 
Mayfield, from Abilene, Texas, 
has earned one letter and helped 
mightily in anchoring the Demon 

End Jerry Mott started and 
earned a letter last year and has 
filled in at both split and tight 
end this year. 

Two more seniors, Randy 
Brodnax and David Smith, have 
already ended their careers 
as a result of injuries. Brod- 
nax missed the last three 
games because on a knee injury. 
Smith was out for the season 
because of pre-season leg mishap. 
Both are three- yearletterman. 

Intramural Scoop 

Four teams have managed per- 
fect records to lead their respec- 
tive leagues in intramural bas- 
ketball play as the season draws 
to a close. 

The No Names are leaders in 
League A, with four wins and no 
losses. In second place is the 
Peacocks with 3-0. In League B 
the Why U's have managed a 
5-0 record, while BSU leads 
League C, also with five wins and 
no losses. 

In the fraternity league, TKE 
(5-1) is followed closely by Kappa 
Sigma with four wins and two 
losses. According to the inter- 
mural director, Roy Gentry, play- 
offs will begin immediately 
after the holidays. 

LOYD J. HUVAL, gymnastic 
coach at LSUNO and instructor 
in health and physical education, 
departs Friday (Nov. 22) for 
Europe where he will represent 
the United States AAU as judge 
for the World Trampoline Champ- 
ionship. The world meet is being 
held Nov. 23 through Dec. 1 in 
Bonn, Germany, and Amersfoort, 
Holland. Huval is National AAV 
Tumbling Chairman and Tram- 
poline Chairman-Elect. He is a 
native of Lake Charles and was 
1968 national champion in floor 
exercises at Northwestern State 

Trueman Sixth 
In Houston 

Distance ace Paul Trueman 
competing in Houston, Texas last 
week brought home a sixth place 
spot. Trueman's time was an un- 
diserable 25:19. 

The five mile course which was 
described as "rough and hilly" by 
Trueman was unusual to what the 
Demon harrier was used to. 

The winning time was record- 
ed by USL's John McDonald. The 
Cajun was clocked at 24:24. Mc- 
Donald will be Trueman's biggest 
threat in the GSC race on Decem- 
ber 7 in Hammond. 

Trueman travels to Oklahoma 
City this weekend to compete in 
the NAIA meet there Saturday. 
An estimated 350 runners will 
be participating in the race. 

McDonald placed sixth in this 
race two years ago and ran to a 
tenth spot last year. He will be 
there Saturday giving Trueman 
a run for his money. But accord- 
ing to Trueman the outcome 
should be a little different be- 
tween the two this week. He 
said, "My workouts were a lot 
better this week. I ran longer 
and faster and feel like I can do 
a better job against McDonald 
next time. 

Previous to last week's race, 
Paul had five wins for as many 


With the 1968-69 season opener 
only two weeks away, North- 
western basketball coach Tynes 
Hildebrand says his cage squad 
still isn't clicking on all cylinders. 

"We've got a long way to go 
if we're going to be ready for the 
opener Nov. 30," Hildebrand said 
after the Demons had been 
pounding the Prather Coliseum 
boards for a month. 

"Our conditioning is getting 
better, but we may not be in top 
shape for the first game," 
Hildebrand continued. 

Hildebrand said his ball club, 
which has every player back from 
last season, should be better than 
the 1967-68 Northwestern quintet 
that finished the regular season 
witha 12-12 record and tied for 
third place in the GSC with a 
6-6 mark. 

"Our defense is still not what 
it is going to have to be for us 
to have 'a great year," Hilde- 
brand pointed out, "but it has im- 
proved. Conditioning is a factor 
here, too. 

"Shooting and conditioning are 
the two phases in which we've 
shown the most improvement," 
said Hildebrand. "One of our big- 
gest problems right now is of- 
fensive rebounding; we're not 
going after that second shot as 
well as we should. Our fast break 
has looked pretty sharp," he ad- 

Hildebrand said that forward

Gray, both all-GSC selections last 
season, were showing improve- 
ment over last season and added 
that guard Dug Watts, one of 
the Demons' five returning start- 
ers, has been impressive so far. 

The Demon cage boss added 
that the fine crop of freshmen 

were showing up well in pre- 
season practice cessions. 

The Purple and White open 
the new season against North 
Texas State University at Denton, 
Texas, before playing their first 
game at home Dec. 3 against 
Stephen F. Austin.

Ralph Butler 
Re-elected To 
Alumni Post 

Ralph Butler of Shreveport was 
re-elected president of the 
Alumni Association Saturday at 
the school's largest Homcoming 
turnout in history.

named vice-president, and Harrel 
Haile of Natchitoches was elected

cies on the Board of Directors

Mrs. Virginia Lee of New Orleans. 

Following a reception for 
alumni and tours of the campus 
during the morning, the Graduate 
N Club met and elected officers 
for the coming year. E. H. Gilson 
of Natchitoches will serve as 
president of the organization.

afternoon in the annual Alumni 
and N Club Golf Tournament at 
the Natchitoches Country Club. 

Walter Ledet of Natchitoches

Debate Squad Is Rebuilding, 
David Precht Lone Returnee 



by Charles Skinner 
Current Sauce Editor 

"We are rebuilding." 

This was debate coach Ray 
Schexnider's terse summary of 
the debate season up to this 
point. After two tournaments in 
which the home team encounter- 
ed some of the roughest debaters 
in the nation, the most that can 
be said is that it was a learning 

Schexnider pointed out that 
this year's squad has only one 
man, David Precht, with colle- 
giate experience. 

Carefully assessing the team's 
members, the coach called special 
attention to Carolyn Hazel of 
Lake Charles, Preston Payne of 
New Llano, and David Navarre of 
Oakdale as showing much prom- 

Other rookie debaters which 
should come around in the future 
are: Richard Baldwin, Sharon 
King, Sherry Buckner, Emily 
Brouillette, Gail Murphy, and 
Donald Couvillion.

Rating a superior in the field of 
individual events was Bill Strat- 
ton of Lake Charles. Linda New- 
man of Alexandria took superior 
in the field of oratory. Earning 
ratings of excellent were Susan 
Ehlers of Lake Charles in inter- 
pretation and Gordon Parker of 
Natchitoches in radio. 

The topic for debate this year 
is, "Resolved: That the executive 
control of U. S. foreign policy 
should be significantly curtailed." 
Schexnider described this topic 
as a "fantastically nebulous con- 
glomeration of indefinable mag- 
nitude," and said it actually 
meant that the competing teams 
could talk about almost anything. 

"The ways the debate powers 
are approaching the proposition 
is with trick plans," said the 
coach, "and it seems that the tra- 
ditional 'needs therefore plan' 
debate case can be almost for- 

When asked about contempo- 
rary trends in the age old prac- 
tice of debate, Schexnider observ- 
ed that everything is much less 
formal than in the past. The 
teams refer to each other by first 
names and seldom define the 
terms under discussion.

Greeks Turn to Individual Interests 

Displays have been taken down 
after homecoming weekend, and 
now each of the Greek groups 
are turning to their own interests 
rather than combined plans. 


Last weekend, sisters of alpha 
sigma alpha held their annual 
homecoming slumber party. Like 
the other sororities, this is the 
occasion where the pledges find 
out who their "big sisters" are. 
Saturday afternoon the Alpha 
Sigmas held open house to wel- 
come back the alumni of their 

Last Friday was Alpha Sigma 
Alpha's founders day. A special 
program took place on that date 
and the sisters also had a house 
birthday party. 

Visiting the girls this week- 
end was their national field rep- 
resentative, Elaine Rain. The sis- 
ters were glad to have her back 
again this semester. 


Phi Mu Sorority held their big- 
sister, little-sister slumber party 
Saturday night from 1 a.m. until 
7am. This is the annual party 
where the pledges find out the 
identity of their big sisters. The 
slumber party followed an after- 
noon open house and welcome 
party for the alumni. Several al- 
umni from he area were on hand 
to congratulate the sisters for 
their continued growth in soror- 
ity number. This marks Phi Mu's 
second year on campus. 

Phi Mu has made many contri- 
butions, to the NSC campus since 
its arrival. Their steady appear- 
ances at pep rallies, football 
games, and school sponsored ac- 
tivities have made them a well- 
known group on campus. Under 
the leadership of their first pres- 
ident, Mary Vacca, the sisters 
have sought to gain a role as one 
of the top social groups on cam- 
pus. They are the national sis- 
ter sority to Kappa Alpha fra- 
ternity and have done much to 
help their brother fraternity this 
year as well as receiving much 
help from them. 

Sigma Sigma Sigma 

Tri Sigma Sorority held their 
annual homecoming slumber par- 
ty Saturday night. Several visit- 
ors were present as well as some 
of the alumni. Tri Sigma held 
an open house Saturday after- 
noon ollowing the game. 

Tri Sigma put much effort in 
its homecoming display. Actives 
and pledges provided a good 
turn-out and made the work 
more like play. The girls met 
early Saturday morning to set 
up the display. 

Tri Sigma president Cheryl 
Wood wishes to thank the sisters 
for their fine turn out this past 
weekend and to again welcome 
the pledges and hope that the 
friendships may grow during 
their years left here at school. 


Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity 
welcomed back alumni this past 
weekend. A open house plus an 
alumni dance made the older 
brothers feel right at home. The 
dance was held Saturday night

'Take Her She's Mine' Highlights Drama Year 

by G. T. Spence 
Current Sauce Correspondent 

A revolving set, excellent di- 
rection, and and inspired acting 
characterized tbe production 
"Take Her She's Mine," directed 
Wednesday night by Marc Petta- 
way of the speech department. 

When Marc Pettaway takes the 
job of director, one is not quite 
sure what to expect. "Take Her 
She's Mine." was no exception. 
The myriad changes of sets and 
crews were handled in a more

Westenburger who portrayed 
Molly Michaelson; Byron Nail, 
who served as her father, Frank; 
and Alice Anne Conner, cast as 
Mrs. Michaeson, was excellent 
and at no time allowed the play 
to drag. 

Byron Nail was excellent in his 
role as the father. In the spot- 
light much of the time, this char- 
acter, rather than his daughters 
did the growing up. 

Alice Anne Conners made Mrs.

The rest of the cast greatly ac-

allowing tbe performance to 
droop for a moment. 

Even more outstanding, partic- 
ularly because it was unique was 
the work of the stagecrew. The 
scene with slunted doorways and 
shelves created a particularly ar- 
resting sight. 

The plot of the play is perhaps 
the most interesting of the year.

President Kilpatrick Sees 
Future Growth at NSC 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
stated in a recent interview that 
he forsees much change occurring 
at NSC in the future. 

If the enrollment continues to 
increase during the next ten 
years as it has in the previous 
ten, the total will be 18,000 by 
1978. "That, in itself, would cause 
a tremendous change," said Dr. 

Although 18,000 students are 
not expected to be enrolled by 
1978, the college head continued, 
at least 12,000 are. 

Such an explosion in enroll- 
ment will cause definite prob- 
lems, he said. He named student 
housing and feeding facilities as 
the greatest of these. Classroom 
space will also have to be in- 

NSC is apparently looking to 
the future already in prepara- 
tion for the expected expansion. 
Kilpatrick said a bond attorney 
has been named to begin a study 
of the possibility of building a 
new women's dormitory, men's 
dormitory, and cafeteria. 

A name change for NSC is 
very likely in the near future, 
Dr. Kilpatrick also commented. 

The increase in students will 
naturally bring about an expand- 
ed curriculum and more instruc- 
tors, noted the president. 

To insure the student of ex- 
posure to a number of differing 
view points, he explained that 
teachers will be hired from many 
different areas of the country. 

Concerning a change in the 
student body, as a whole, Presi- 
dent Kilpatrick sees only im- 
provement. "Students today are 
better than were those of my 

generation, because of several 
reasons," Dr. Kilpatrick said. 

The reasons he listed are that 
today's students are better in- 
formed, better educated, and 
more tolerant of other people's 
peculiarities and way of life. 
President Kilpatrick predicts an 
even greater improvement to 

Humanism is on the grow, in 
his opinion, and although stu- 
dents of all extremes are repre- 
sented on NSC's campus, most 
keep to the maddle road. 

President Kilpatrick concluded 
that more and more of NSC's 
students are realizing their duty 
to follow Americans, and are try- 
ing to fill their place in society.

school and the students quite a 
lot just to have a good workout 
on the floor." 

At this time another member 
walked up to the little cluster 
of people standing in the hall- 
way. He lit a pipe and asked 
how the sound had been to the 
audience. We explained that 
there had been no complaints 
that we knew about. 

"We didn't bring our own 
sound equipment with us tonight, 
but the public address system in 
the building sounded excellent 
to us." 

He went on to explain that the 
group had been formed four years 
ago while they were all under- 
graduates at Georgia Tech. Only 
one is still enrolled in school, 
the other three having vacated 
the classroom for the present 
for the more lucrative entertain- 
ment field. 

Was this there first appearance 
in Louisiana? 

"No it wasn't" the second man 
said. We were down there in 
Thibodeaux a few weeks ago. We 
met a couple of those "Cajuns" 
there, and they took us to some 
place called the "Tiki." We got 

a big kick out of the whole deal." 

Since all of you are from the 
deep South, how come you didn't 
lead the audience in singing 

"Well about six months ago 
we were playing the University 
of Kentucky, co-starring with 
Jackie Wilson. The audience was 
half white and half black, and 
we struck it up. The tune almost 
caused a riot. I think it is a 
great song, but as I said, we 
don't like to offend anyone who 
has paid to see us. We wouldn't 
want to listen to anything which 
we considered anti-white, and 
they wouldn't want to hear any- 
thing they considered anti-black. 

"We just don't agree with en- 
tertainers who like to pick on 
people because of race, religion 
and so on. And then too some 
times you find people adding 
meanings to lyrics which aren't 
there at all. It gets out of hand. 
An entertainer shouldn't make 
anyone feel uncomfortable." 

The Criers advised us that 
their first record will be com- 
ing out in about three weeks, 
and promised to send us a few 
promotional copies, if we would 
forward them a copy of our re- 
view. It was a deal we assured

Neil Diamond Performance 
Brings Festival To Close Saturday 

Neil Diamond 

Neil Diamond, renouned song 
writer and musician will appear 
Saturday at 8 p.m., in Prather 
Coliseum immediately following 
the Christmas lighting. The pro- 
duction is presented by the Stu- 
dent Government Association. 

In this age of the "total musi- 
cian," musical writing skill has 
suddenly assumed an importance 
equal to the skills of musician- 

One of the leading spokesmen 
for this new wave of writer-per- 
formers that now account for 
many of our biggest record suc- 
cesses is young Neil Diamond. 
On the hitmaking scene since 
1965 as a composer, and later as 
a vocalist singing his own hits. 
Neil's name has grown in import- 
ance to become synonymous with 
the hottest and most exciting 
sound in contemporary music. 

Singing his own compositions, 
"Solitary Man," "Cherry, Cherry," 
"I Got The Feelin', "You Got To 
Me," "Girl You'll Be A Woman 
Soon," and his latest smash on 
Bang Records, "Thank The Lord 
For The Night Time," Neil has 
established himself among the 
top recording talents of the day. 
Previously as a tunesmith, he 

had attracted much attention with 
his songs for Jay And The Ameri- 
cans, Bobby Vinton, Andy Wil- 
liams and others. 

For T.V. and disc heroes, The 
Monkees, Neil penned the tre- 
mendously successful "I'm A Be 
liever," said to be the fastest- 
selling single of all time with a 
world-wide sales nearing ten mil- 
lion within a few months of its 
release. And hardly had "Belie- 
ver" started to lose its grip on 
first place when it was replaced 
by another Monkee blockbuster, 
"A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit 
You," also penned by Neil. These 
two giant hits and Neil's latest 
smash for the group "Another 
Pleasant Valley Sunday," have 
made Neil Diamond the hottest 
writer on the current scene. 

Neil began writing while at- 
tending Lincoln High School in 
Brooklyn. As a member of the 
glee club, he would work on his 
lyrics during classes. "My tea- 
chers all thought I was taking 
notes. You know what happen- 
ed? I passed all my courses but 
one. I flunked music." 

Born in the Coney Island sec- 
tion of Brooklyn on Jan. 24, 1945, 
Neil is the son of a clothier. 

"My father was an amateur thea- 
trical buff. Let anyone announce 
they were staging an amateur 
show anyplace and he'd drop his 
tape measure and run to offer 
his services." Neil himself be- 
gan strumming his first guitar 
at the age of twelve. He took a 
few lessons, but when they tried 
to teach him notes, he quite, pre- 
ferring to learn on his own. "I 
wanted to play from the heart, 
and that they couldn't teach me," 
he explains. 

A former pre-med student at 
New York University, where he 
was a sabre fencing champion, 
Neil represents the new breed 
of "thinking musicians" when he 
takes issue with what he calls 
the "babbits" of America who 
criticize pop rock musicians and 
music. "The fact is," says Neil, 
"that pop musicians are the 
torch bearers of the new Ameri- 
can culture. We picked up the 
torch from the nothing genera- 
tion which gave us WWII, the 
Korean War, the Viet Nam War, 
alcoholism, and more mental ill- 
ness than ever before."

Gala Festival 

Christmas Lighting To Begin Yule Season 
As 90,000 Visitors Flock to Natchitoches 

by Charles Skinner 
Current Sauce Editor 

More than 90,000 celebrants are 
expected to pour into downtown 
Natchitoches for the Annual 
Christmas observance on Cane 

The visitors, along with local 
gentry and college students will 
witness the culmination of the 
laying of over 38 miles of wire, 
the spending of over $2,000 on 

fireworks, and the illumination 
of 175,000 bulbs. 

The Christmas Festival will be- 
gin with a parade at 2 p.m., which 
will feature 124 bands and 25 
floats. After the parade, bands 
will entertain along that Cane 
River Band followed by a per- 
formance by the Caddo Ski Bees. 

At 7 p.m., the fireworks will 
begin, piercing the night with 
costly noise and smoke along with

breathtaking color and surprize. 

Following the actual turning on 
of the lights will be a perfor- 
mance in Prather Colliseum at 
8 p.m., by Neil Diamond, a 
famous recording star. 

The Festival started 38 years 
ago and was at first just a local 
event. It was the brainchild of 
Max Bergdorf who thought that 
Natchitoches should do something 
to express the real meaning of 
Christmas. He got together with 
the late O. F. Ortmeyer, utilities 
commissioner, and together they 
presented the first Christmas 

Through the cooperation of the 
city and its businessmen, the 
first decorations were gathered. 

A huge star eight feet across 
was placed on a huge pole and 
erected at the east end of the 
Cane River Bridge. Today the 
star has been replaced by one 
more than 20 ft. across. 

Bulbs were used in the set 
pieces that line the banks of the 
lake and in trees which were 
placed at vantage points, and as 
effective decorations on the prin- 
cipal streets of the city. At pre- 
sent over 50,000 bulbs are used. 

The next step, initiated by John 
Cunningham and A. C. Massin- 
gill with S. E. West and A. T. 
Cox, was the introduction of a 
fireworks display which has ris- 
en from the original $250 to over 

The Natchitoches-Northwest- 
ern Symphony Orchestra will op- 
en its third season with a gala 
concert Friday Dec. 13 at 8 p.m.

Featured as guest artist will be 
Sylvia Zaremba, world renowned 
concert pianist. Dr. Joseph B. 
Carlucci will conduct the orch- 

Preliminary ceremonies mark- 
ing the third anniversary of the 
orchestra's performances under 
the auspices of the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Symphony Society, 
will include remarks by Mayor 
W. Ray Scott of Natchitoches, 
and Jim Bob Key, president of 
the society. Out-of-town guests 
will also be recognized. 

Miss Zaremba made her recit- 
al debut at the age of five, and 
her orchestral debut at seven. 
She has toured Europe, as well 
as South, Central and North A- 
merica and has gained tremen- 
ous success. 

Miss Zaremba, who will per- 
form the Grieg Piano Concerto, 
formerly taught at the University 
pf Oklahoma, and is now Artist-

ous composer Bizet, and a rous- 
ing arrangement of the popular 
war tune "When Johnny Comes 
Marching Home," by the distin- 
guished American composer and 
arranger, Morton Gould. 

College students will be admit- 
ed on their I.D. cards. 

Information concerning season 
tickets may be obtained from the 
Music Department. 

Single orchesra performance 
tickets will also be on sale at the 
box office prior to the concert 

Many campus organizations re- 
sponded enthusiastically to the 
request of the Student Union De- 
coration Committee for contribu- 
tions to buy Christmas decora- 
tions for the Student Union. 

The contributions came in re- 
sponse to all the campus organi- 

According to this letter, the 
purpose of the new decorations 
was to "create a true Christmas 
spirit in the hearts of each stud- 
ent, faculty member, and guest 
throughout the entire campus." 

The decorations on the front 
of the building consist of five 
giant decorations, two bells, two 
snow flakes, and a bow, all eight 
feet across. These are surround- 
ed by matching colored lights 
and garland stringers completely 
outlining the entire rooftop and 
a two-thirds portion of each side 
of the building. 

In addition to these decora- 
tions, Blue Key donated funds 
for the purchase of parts for a 
musical Christmas tree. The tree 
was built by the Electronics 
Club and put on the second floor 

of the Student Union. 

Marking the beginning of the 
Christmas season on campus was 
the lighting of the decorations 
Thursday night. Highlighting 
this event was the chorus, which 
sang Christmas carols. 

Those organizations which do- 
nated money toward the pur- 
chase of the decorations include 
Blue Key and the Alumni Asso- 
ciation, both donating a large 
sum, the Purple Jackets, Associ- 
ated Men Students, Sigma Tau 
Gamma, Phi Delta Kappa, the 
Interdenominational Council, Phi 
Epsilon Kappa, and Pi Omega Pi. 

Also, Alpha Sigma Alpha, the 
the Cosmopolitan Club, Phi Kap- 
papa Phi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Mu, 
Sigma Kappa, Alpha Beta Alpha, 
Kappa Delta Phi, the Industrial 
Education Club, and the Psychol- 
ogy Club. 

Also planned to increase 
Christmas sprit on campus was 
the window painting contest, 
sponsored by the Student Union 
Fine Arts Committee, headed by 
Karen Karisny.

Forgotten Traditions 

The revered traditions of the college concerning Howdy 
Days and Freshman Caps have not been observed for the 
last two years and should either be stricken from the college 
handbook or implemented. 

Concerning Howdy Days, the handbook reads: 
"To emphasize the friendship on the campus, certain days 
in the fall semester have been set aside as Howdy Days. 
On these days, all persons on the campus — students, faculty, 
and staff — will wear nametags, and try to call each person 
they meet by name." 

This tradition has not been observed for several years 
and, as is readily observable, is completely outdated. Last 
year, moves to resurrect the tradition were made by the 
SGA, but failed to get off the ground. This year, Howdy Days 
have been forgotten. 

If the original purpose of this custom was to encourage 
all students to know the names of all others, it is now im- 
possible with the continued growth of the college. 

Moving on to the other tradition, that of Freshman Caps, 
the handbook reads: 

This is one of our oldest traditions. Buy your cap and 
wear it regularly. The revenue from the sale of these caps 
goes for a good cause — the Religious Council program of 
financial aid — usually in the form of a small loan program. 
All freshmen are expected to wear the cap until the annual 
Tech football game. If we win the game, they are taken off. 
If we lose, they are to be worn until the Thanksgiving Holi- 

Most students consider it unthinkable to be forced to 
wear caps continually for as much as three months just 
because they are freshmen. This dread has been much more 
pronounced in the attitudes of the female students on the 

In order to satisfy the feminine complaint, ribbons were 
ordered, but these too were treated with contempt. 

The wearing of the caps can be enforced, if an effort 
were to be made. The meal tickets of freshmen could be 
marked and they could be forced to wear the caps to meals. 
The enforcement of the tradition is not the problem. 

The issue is whether or not the freshman caps should 
be a part of the modern college experience. 

Whatever the decision of those in positions of respon- 
sibility, the traditions of the college should either be for- 
ever dropped, or enforced.

Jean Dixon Denies Rumors Concerning Mass Murders 
Registrar Announces 
Regulation Changes 

The registrar, Walter P. Ledet, 
has announced a number of 
changes on the academic regula- 
tions and policies of the college. 
They are as follows: 

The definition of a full-time 
student is one who is taking at 
least 14 semester hours of sched- 
uled work during a semester or 
at least 7 semester hours in a 
summer session. 

The following regulations ap- 
ply to special examinations for 

1. A $5 fee is charged for each 
special examination. 

2. Only regularly enrolled stu- 
dents are eligible to take special 

3. Special examinations may be 
taken only in the first three 
weeks of a summer session. 

4. Permission is not granted 
for special examinations in gradu- 
ate courses, a course which is a 
prerequisite, stated or implied, 
for an advanced course in which 
credit is earned, or a course which 
a student has pursued beyond 
the first six weeks of a regular 
semester or the first three weeks 
of a summer semester. 

5. Permission to take a credit 
examination must be secured 
from the student's faculty ad- 
viser, department head and dean; 
also the head of the department 
in which the course is offered 
and the registrar Instructors 
may not give a special examina- 
tion unless an official permit 
has been obtained from the Regis- 

Credit granted on the basis of 
a special examination is so re- 
corded on the student's record 
and marked with the letter grade 

earned on the special examina- 
tion. Credit examinations may not 
be repeated. No grade lower than 
"C" may be used for credit. 

7. Credits earned by credit 
examinations are not considered 
in determining academic proba- 
tion and suspension at the end 
of a semester or summer session. 

Five Students 
On Honors List 

Five students have been nam- 
ed to the school's new Account- 
ing Honors List. 

The Honors Program in Ac- 
counting at Northwestern was 
established last fall to recognize 
a limited number of outstanding 
accounting majors. 

Honor points are awarded on- 
ly for a grade of C or higher, and 
the students have their grades 
figured for the entire time they 
have been in college. The grades 
are computed on a 3.0 basis, 
eliminating any points for D's. 

Dr. Earl Thames, head of the 
Department of Accounting, Said, 
"We do not allow points for all 
subjects pursued, only those 
which we consider honor 
cour-ses. The true quality of the 
honors list is evident in that we 
had only five students make the 
necessary grades, and we have 
more than 200 accounting ma- 

The five students named to the 
honors list were Michael G. 
Smith, Vivian; Albert H. Jack- 
son, Natchitoches; Sammy K. 
Brown, Coushatta; Charles Sea- 
man, Thidodaux, and Kathleen 
Eddlemon, Leesville.

will be co-sponsored by the NSC 

Dear Sir: 

I see by the press dispatches 
from Northwestern that "the only" 
former heads of the Department 
of Health and Physical Education 
were honored by the placing of 
large color portraits in the Men's 
Gymnasium at the college. Only 
two men were so honored des- 
pite the fact that one of the most 
distinguished men in the field 
of physical activities in the State 
of Louisiana was also head of 
that department. 

As a former student, close 
friend and devoted admirer of 
Dr. C. C. Stroud, I would indeed 
be remiss in not bringing this 
apparent "over-sight" to the at- 
tention of the present student 
body and to the host of former 
students, associates and faculty 
members who were privileged to 
know him. 

Without derogating from the 
honor bestowed on my good 
friend and associate, the former 
Dr. Nesom or fellow Kiwanian, 
Dr. Thomas, I feel that this over- 
sight should be promptly and 
suitably corrected since I am sure 
that both honorees would be 
among the first to admit that Dr. 
Stroud's picture should lead the 
rest. In fact, on the occasion of 
"Doc's" death, Dr. Nesom, who 
succeded Dr. Stroud, wrote "To 
those who knew him well, "Doc" 
was a great man. His courage, 
his infectious spirit of camaderie 
and his sparkling humor, coupled 
with modesty, made him the man 
we loved." 

Realizing the space limitations 
of your paper, I regret that I can- 
not outline the many unselfish, 
thoughtful, humanitarian and al- 
truistic things which "Doc" did 
for the college and for his stu- 
dents and associates during the 
years, but to confirm the fact 
that he was in fact head of the 
Department of Health and Physi- 
cal Education, for more than 15 
years, I am enclosing a machine 
copy of a news story concerning 

Sincerely yours, 
John Makar

Editor's note: This article is being 
reprinted from the Washington Daily 
News to quiet rumors of a Jean 
Dixon disaster prediction which alledg- 
edly threatened this campus. 

A false report of a prediction 
attributed to Mrs. Jeane Dixon, 
which denies emphatically, is 
sweeping college campuses of 
the Eastern Seaboard and the 
Midwest. Mrs. Dixon is anxious 
to scotch the rumor. 

The rumor changes in detail 
from hour to hour and from one 
locality to another, but generally 
it quotes Mrs. Dixon as saying 
that a mass killing will occur on 
the campus of a college. 

The calls that have come to, 
"The News", about a half dozen 
in the past week, say the predic- 
tion named a college on the East- 
ern Seaboard and even set a date 
for the tragedy. 

Mrs. Dixon declares she never 
made any such prediction, pri- 
vately or publicly, and even if 
she were to forsee such a tragedy 
visiting a specific she would not 
make it public. 

"It is my policy to notify the 
proper officials if and when I 
pick up vibrations indicating a 
disaster," she said. "The author- 
ities know best how to alert their 
people without causing panics; 
and also how best to protect lives 
and property." 

Mrs. Dixon said the current 
rumor was first heard early last 
spring in Oklahoma City. Within 
two weeks it had spread to Fort 
Worth and to many schools of 
the Southwest Conference. The 
false story, after a summer rest, 
flared up again in October. 

Most recently, it has frighten- 
ed students at colleges in upstate 
New York, including Skidmore, 
Alfred and Syracuse. Calls to 
"The News" came from colleges 
in New England and in Virgina. 

Mrs. Dixon's horoscope column 
appears daily in "The News" 
which also publishes her period- 
ic predictions. When "The New" 
subscribbed to her columns, it's 
editors were warned by Mrs. Dix- 
on's representatives that there 
would be many rumors of predic- 
tions falsely attributed to her. 
And this has proven true. 

The most notable of the false 
rumors that have come to "The 
News" was the report last spring 
that the Chesapeake Bay Bridge 
would collapse on the July 4th 

Attempts to track all such ru- 
mors back to their source always 
fail. It's always: "I heard it from 
a friend who read it somewhere, 
or heard it somewhere."

Intramural Scoop 

All four leading teams drew 
byes in their respective leagues 
as the first round of intramural 
basketball playoff competition 
got underway this week. 

The A.M.S. Super Stars down-

will battle in second-round com- 
petition Monday at 4:30. 

BSU No. 1, leaders of League 
C, played the Stump Jumpers

in the playoffs against the win- 
ners of the Soul Kings vs. Piney 
Wood Rooters game to take 
place Monday at 4:30. 

The Soul Kings were victorious 
over the Fighting Frosh while 
the Rooters overpowered their 
opponents, the Monarchs in their 
first-round games. 

The fraternity league leaders, 
Tau Kappa Epsilon, had no op- 
ponent in the first round. They

five, who defeated Pi Kappa Phi. 

Kappa Alpha and the Dirty

ners of the TKE-Kappa Sigma 

As competition advances furth- 
er into the playoffs, some inter- 
esting battles should be available 
for intramural basketball fans.

Ten Players Grab Awards in Annual Banquet 

by Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Campus Editor 

Northwestern's 1968 football 
team was honored Monday night 
at the annual awards banquet 
sponsored by the Demons' 
Quarterback Club. Some 200 fans, 
players, coaches and club mem- 
bers attended the dinner at the 
First Methodist Church. 

Coach Glenn Gossett paid tri- 
bute to his assistants and players 
as he expressed, "This is the 
finest coaching staff I have ever 

bean associated with. Both players 
and coaches had a tremendous 
attitude and a will to win." 

Gossett also reflected on the 
future: "We should have a great 
future. Six out of our 22 starters 
in the last game were freshman." 

The entire staff showed appre- 
ciation for the senior leadership 
on the team. Kenny Ferro, David 
Don Guidry were praised as team

Purple and White Cagers Picked To Win GSC 

by David Miller 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

The Northwestern State Demon 
basketball team, picked to win 
the Gulf States Conference by 
the conference coaching staff, 
lost its first two games of the 
season last week. The Purple anr* 
White squadbowed to powerful 
North Texas State 114-84 and 
slipped below Stephen F. Austih 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand's 1968- 
69 roster is almost a retake of

All GSC Picks Back 

All GSC teamers James Wyatt 
and Pete Gray are back to dd 
spice to the team effort. Wyatt 
in a forward position pulled down 
an average of 19.6 rebounds last 
season and netted 22.2 points a 
game. Gray, with a sizzling .574 
percent record in the field goal 
department, pushed in an aver- 
age of 18.4 points a game. 
Bloodworth and W 'aiding 

Newcomers to the Demon squad 
who will be called upon regularly 
are Charles Bloodworth and Carl 

ton Walding. Bloodworth, 6-8 and 
230 pounds is expected to bring 
much needed help to the Demon 
rebounding records. Walding's 
agile 6-3 frame will aid the Purple 
and White in the shooting area. 
North Texas State 
The North Texas State squad 
took over early in the game last 
Saturday night outscoring the De- 
mons 114-84. The running and 
shooting tactics of the Eagles 
were too much for the underbog 
Demons. The Texas five consis- 
tently outdid the Northwestern 
cagers on the backboards racking 
up 63 ricochets to the Demons 32.

Demons Tear Up Old NSC Record 
Books by Setting 23 New Marks 

Final Northwestern State Col 
lege football statistics show that 
the 1968 Demons, sparked by sen- 
sational senior quarterback Don 
Guidry, shattered 23 school rec- 
ords during the season just end- 

The veteran from Church Point 
who was voted by his teammates 
to be the most valuable player 
at NSC this season, started the 
season by breaking the NSC and 
Gulf States Conference records 
for passes attempted when he 

fired 50 against Abilene Christian. 

Guidry's other single game 
marks include most yards gain- 
ed (331 against Southeastern), 
most passes completed (24 
against LSU, also a GSC record) 
and most touchdown passes 
(three) which he accomplished 
in three different games). Don's 
total offensive production of 373 
yards in the SLC game and his 
63 plays against ACC are also 
ercords for a Demon.

Gossett Considered 
For Baylor Top Spot

Current Sauce Campus Editor 

Glenn Gossett, Northwestern's 
head football coach and acting 
athletic director, said earlier this 
week that Baylor University of- 
ficials had not contacted him 
contacted him concerning the 
job opening as football coach for 

According to the Associated 
Press, Gossett had been specula- 
ted for the job along with head 
coaches Jim Pittman of Tulane, 
Homer Rice of Cincinnati, Rod 
Rust of North Texas State, and 
Jerry Claiborne of Virginia Tech. 
Assistants Mike Campbell of Tex- 
as and Melvin Johnson of Arkan- 
sas are being considered accord- 
ing to AP. 

Former Baylor coach, John 
Bridges, was fired from his po- 
sition last week after 10 cam- 
paigns with Baylor. The Bears 
had a 48-53-1 record including 
3-7 this year during Bridges ten- 
ure. Baylor has not won a South- 
west Conference championship

five straight losing seasons.

Immediate Plans 

The entire coaching staff has 
been going through their second 
recruiting season and will con- 
tinue in the immediate future. 
Saturday (tomorrow) is the ear- 
liest official signing date for pro- 
spective players. All the major 
cities in Louisiana have been 
scouted along with several out of 
state prospects. 

Over one-third of the official 
roster last season was made up 
of freshman which would indi- 
cate a good recruiting year. An- 
other productive year is antici- 
pated by the staff. 

Quarterbacks and interior line- 
man on both sides of the line 
are being most sought after. 

Scheduling Changes 

Insuring a schedule with more 
appeal to the fans ranks as the 
number one job after recruiting 
is over, Louisiana College has 
been dropped and a suitable op- 
ponent will have to be found. A 
10-game schedule is also being 
considered if a caliber team can 
be listed. 

tempts, 116 completions for 1,712 
yards and 16 touchdowns wiped 
out the NSC record in each cat- 
egory. His total offense for the 
'68 season resulted in three more 
records for the Northwestern vet- 
eran, including 344 plays, 2,101 
yards and an average of 233.4 
yards a game. 

Guidry's primary target dur- 
ing the season, sophomore split 
end Al Phillips of Baton Rouge, 
moved in as the Demon's top sin- 
gle season reciever with 35 cat- 
ches for 642 yards and 10 touch- 
downs. Phillip's three scoring 
catches against Louisiana Tech 
is also a record. 

As a team, Northwestern es- 
tablished marks for most total 
yards gained in a single season, 
3,570, most total yards averaged 
per game, 396.6, and most yards 
averaged per game passing, 

The Demons' 331 yards 
through the air in the season fin- 
ale against Southeastern was al- 
so a record, as the minus 13 
yards rushing Northwestern al- 
lowed Louisiana College. 


Junior distance ace Paul 
Trueman will miss the district 
cross country championship meet 
held tomorrow in Hammon due 
to severly twisted ankle that he 
suffered in the NAIA Champion- 
ships held in Oklahoma City two 
weeks ago. It marks the third 
straight year that he has been 
hampered by injuries. 

Without their iumber one run- 
ner, the going will be tough for 
the rest of the team over the 
four mile asphalt course. 

Coach John Thompson expres- 
sed the hope that Trueman will 
be accepted to run in the an- 
nual Sugar Bowl track meet held 
in late December, and that Paul 
will be sufficiently healed and 
be in shape for the outing.

30 point lead with 12:30 left in 
the game. 

Stephen F. Austin 

Stephen F. Austin coming off 
a 27-3 record from last year and 
2-0 thus far this season brought 
a big bunch of boys with them 
to play basketball Tuesday night. 
Coach Marshall Brown's starting 
five averaged 6-7 leg by 6-ll'/2 
George Johnson. The Lumber- 
jacks connected for 47 percent 
from the field while the Demons 
still cold, could only muster 38 

While rebounding was the 
Purple and White's greatest 
wound against North Texas State, 
it was their most outstanding 
asset against the much taller 
Lumberjacks. The Demons grab- 
bed 61 off the boards while the 
cagers from Texas salvaged 55. 

The game belonged to the 
'Jacks all the way with the De- 
mons trailing 45-34 at the half 
mons trailing 45-34 at the half. 
But with 4:30 left in the game 
the Demons rallied with a full 
court press and managed four 
straight baskets before the Lum- 
berjacks could call time. Up to 
the final seconds the demons got 
within two points of the then 
shaky 'Jacks but with 39 seconds 
showing the Texas team pulled 
ahead to end the game 98-91. 

Scoring high for the Demons 
was James Wyatt with 24 points 
and the same number of re- 
bounds. Charles Bloodworth was 
next in line with 14 points and 
seven rebounds. Pete Gray and 
Jim Peffer added 13 each. The 
Lumberjacks best effort was 
shown by Johnson with 23 points 
and 12 recoveries from the

Student Government Begins 

Dorm Trials 

Editors note: This is the first of 
a series of reprints which are an 
attempt to discover the roots of 
Student Government at North- 
western. This article was publish- 
ed in the Nov. 9, 1922 issue of the 
Current Sauce. It was headed. 
"Student Government At College." 

After several attempts on the 
part of students to get student 
government on Normal Hill, it 
was decided by President Roy 
and several teachers that it should 
be given a trail by second, third 
and fourth year students. So 
these were placed in the new 
Dormitory C and the plan is being 

A meeting of all girls of C was 
called in the first week of the 
term and it was decided that the 
government would be carried 
out with the aid of a Council 
composed of seven members. A 
House President Brernadette 
Langlia, was elected, and she will 
be President of the Council. 

Then, the girls of the upper 
and lower floors met separately 
and each elected three girls to be 
on the council. The upper girls 
elected Emma Adelle Frere, Ruby 
Craton and Ruby White; and 
those of the lower floors elected 
Hedwych Stahl, Carmen Kennedy 
and Grace Rogers. 

Next, the council met with Miss 
Feltus and made a list of rules 
and regulations, b^ which the 
body of students will be governed. 
These were accepted by the girls 
of C Dormitory. Carrie Mont- 
gomery was elected Treasurer. 

There are two monitors on a 
floor, with new ones elected each 
week so as not to put the burden 
on a few. 

So far, student government 
has proved a success in this dorm- 
itory; and we hope that the 
results will be so satisfactory that 
it can be extended to other dorm- 
itories on the Hill. 

Alpha Lambda Delta Sponsors 
All College Fine Arts Festival 

Auditions will be held Thursday, 
Dec. 12, in the Student Union 
Ballroom for participation in the 
Festival of Creative Arts, a cul- 
tural event to be sponsored by 
Alpha Lambda Delta. 

According to Margaret Kovar, 
president of the Nu Sigma Chi 
Chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta, 
any interested students wishing 
to enter exhibits in arts and 
interior design, music, or archi- 
techure may take part. 

The audition meeting will be 
held at 7 p.m. in the ballroom. 
The Festival, which will include 
a fashion show and a mock night 
club dubbed the Purple Pet in 
in addition to the exhibits, will 
run Feb. 27, 28, and March 1. 

It will be held in the Student 
Union and will also feature ex- 
hibits by faculty, staff, and some 
guests. Some 300 persons have

The brothers would like to 
extend congratulations to alumni 
Stan Branton for his fine record 
in law school. He recently won 
first place in the "Noot Court" 
hearing at the law school at LSU. 
This "Noot Court" is a mock law 
court presided over by the Su- 
preme Court. This is considered 
to be one of the highest, if not 
the highest, honor in law school. 

Kappa Alpha Fraternity pledg- 
ed two boys this past week. They 
are Charles Clowney from El 
Dorado and Buz Allen from Lafa- 

already signed up. 

All proceeds will go to the 
Retarded Children's and Crippled 
Children's Funds. 

Miss Kovar said that the stated 
purpose of the project is, "To 
create a positive image by invol- 
ving students and college on a 
worth wile project and to offset 
any possible negative image that 
may have been projected by re- 
cent events or be projected in 
the future on the campus." 
Northwestern's chapter of Alpha 
Lambda Delta, an honorary 
society consisting of sophomore 
women achieving a grade average 
of 3.5 or better during their fresh- 
man years, is asking for assistance 
in sponsorship of the project 
form active groups on campus. 

The Lions Club and many 
other business and civic organiza- 
tions of Natchitoches have al- 
ready become official sponsors. 

Another benifit derived from 
the proposed Festival of Crea- 
tive Arts is the opportunity for 
the student to display his works 
in the various fields of arts and 

In voicing Alpha Lambda Del- 
ta's expectation of the Festival, 
Miss Kovar said, "We feel that 
this is a worthwhile project not 
only for the college, but for the 
town of Natchitoches, and that 
it will induce better relations be- 
tween both students and citizens.

Relevant Issues 

By Henry Burns 
SGA President 

"What has the Student Govern- 
ment Association done for me?" 
This is a valid question asked by 
want to be involved in the re- 
sponsible government which 
represents them in the collegiate 
scene. The ainswer to this com- 
plicated question can not be given 
in a list (1, 2, 3), but must be 
delineated in constitution duties, 
expected duties, and those duties 
of iniative and constructive ima- 
gination. To me, Studetnt Govern- 
ment means to be alert to student 
needs. A need to one student is 
his need and it must be respected 
because this is causing his dis- 
contentment. Can all the student 
needs be alleviated? No! Because 
as one problem is solved and its 
affliction is smoothed over, then 
another erupts as the predomin- 
ant issue with all its urgency and 
merit. My basic contention here 
is that improvement can always 
be improved on. 

The Student Government has 
many active committees that are 
dilgently searching for better 
avenues of student life in the 
realm of academic, and social 
being of the individual. Many of 
these changes never receive 
publicity; in fact, they are a result 
of normal transactions between 
the SGA and the administration 
or other concerns. 

Generation of interest by 
caused the SGA to publicize its 
functions as well as new student 
efforts and new student contri- 
butions to the campus welfare. 

No longer can things be taken for 
granted but tangible proof must 
be given to show the vast area 
of student participation in this 
institution structure. Let me be 
the "first" to admit that even a 
greater understanding is needed. 
With constructive criticism, this 
is within our grasps and, let me 
stand to sty that I am dedicating 
myself to this task. 

Let's look at some of the issues 
that are being handled by the 
SGA: (1) Judical functions, (2) 
Allen and Allen vending ma- 
chines, (3) cafeteria line, (4) book 
enchange,(5) pavinjg of parking 
lots, (6) Free Speech Forum, (7) 
"Action Line," (8) jukebox, (9) 
other contemsions presented by 
interested students. 

Maybe your pet gr}ie\<ance 
hasn't been aired by SGA. The 
problem might lie in the fact that 
we are not informed. This is the 
purpose of the recently formed 
"Action Lin^l";— to inskire com- 
munications between the student 
and the administration. Now. by 
phone, any studeftt can relate 
grievances to the SGA for action, 
answers, and solutions to pro- 
blems. (Time 2-4 P.M. Thurs- 
days-Phone number-5296) 

If we are to preserve the proper 
academic atmosphere at North- 
western State College, we must 
meet the problems that beseige 
us with a certain amount of ag- 
gressive firmness. And, a mutual 
understanding with cooperation 
must be maintained in order to

Gray Ghosts 
Down Southern 

The Gray Ghosts, the college's 
ROTC Rifle Team, took part in 
a two school rifle match at South- 
ern University in Baton Rouge, 
Louisiana on November 22, 1968. 

The Gray Ghosts, headed by 
Cadet 2nd lieutenant Wayne 
Cooley and Cadet Sergeant Ken- 
neth Kern, won this match 
against Southern University by 
a score of 47 to 11. This was done 
under the handicap of having 
two of the team's best firer's out 
due to illness. Wayne Cooley was 
the high scorer for the North- 
western State College Gray 
Ghosts with a score of 251. 

Besides Cadet 2nd Lieutenant 
Cooley, other members of the 
Northwestern State College 
ROTC Rifle Team who fired in 
this match were Larry Baum- 
gardner, William Allbritten, 
Roger Opio, George Hinds, and 
Ralph Green. 

The Gray Ghosts remained in 
Baton Rouge Friday night and 
continued on to New Orleans on 
Saturday for some well deserved 
rest and relaxation. "The Team 
this year should be the best we 
have had at NSC for a long 
time." said Mr. Cooley when ask- 
ed to comment, "due to the fact 
that the average team score is 
between 240 and 250." 

This week the Gray Ghosts are 
preparing for the Fort Polk Re- 
gional Rifle Match to be held at 
Fort Polk, Louisiana this Satur- 
day, December 7,1968. At this 
match the Gray Ghosts will com- 
pete against rifle teams from

SGA Initiates Book Exchange; 
Undercuts Book Store Prices 

by G. T. Spence 
Current Sauce Correspondent 

To alleviate student problems 
with book reselling, the Student 
Government Association has ini- 
tiated a Book Exchange program 
for students. The new measure 
will be headed by Bruce Kevil, 
chairman of the Student Services 

The purpose of the Book Ex- 
change is to give the student a 
greater amount of resell cash for 
his book investment than he 
would receive at the college book 

In addition to this, the ex- 
change would give students low- 
er prices when they bought books 
in the spring by eliminating the 
middle man. 

The Book Exchange will open 
on Monday, Jan. 13, and will ac- 
cept books from students who 
wish to sell. When the student 
brings his book, he will be given 
an envelope on which he writes 
his name, permanent student 
number, and his NSC Box num- 
ber. Also on the envelope, the 
student will write how much he 
expects to receive for the book. 

Then the student will be given 
a numbered receipt for the book. 
The student will be advised to 
list his expected price at between 
50 percent and 75 percent of 
the original price in order that 
he and other students might 

benefit from it fully. 

The exchange will remain open 
from Jan. 13 until finals are 

Beginning the first day of 
registration, and lasting until 
one day after classes start, stu- 
dents may purchase books at the 
exchange. When paying for books, 
the student will put the appro- 
priate amount into the envelope 
and give it to the cashier. 

A handling charge of 25 cents 
will be assessed. 40 percent of the 
amount collected will go to the 

Circle K service organization 
and 60 percent will go to the 
Student Government Association. 

Students whose books are sold 
at the Exchange will be given 
three days to pick up the enve- 
lope containing his money.

SGA Votes T© 


By James Walker 
Current- Sauce Managing Editor 

A lively discussion of the pros 
and cons of the proposed Stu- 
dent Government Association 
sponsored Free Speech Alley 
highlighted business at the SGA 
meeting Monday night. 

Two factions of the SGA were 
divided over the issue with one 
group, headed by vice-president 
of men George Gray, senior class 
treasurer Scotty Maxwell and 
freshman class president Val 
Marmillion, expressing a fear that 
the Free Speech Alley might be- 
come a tool of some of the more 
liberal groups on campus. 

THE GREY GH0STS, NSC rifle team took second in the regional rifle match which was held \n Fort 
Polk. Taking first with a lead of only 40 total points was Louisiana State University. Placing th\rd 
was Tulane. Heading the group is Wayne Cooley of Rosepine, serving as captain; co-captain is Ken- 
neth Kern. The group w\ll travel next to a larger tournament at Fort Hood Texas. 

S#me Cemments On College Life 

There are many things about 
NSC that I cannot stand. 

This, of course, gives me a 
very normal collegiate outlook. 
It is not 'popular to like every- 
thing, and let me assure you 
that I don't. 

Among the many hatreds which 
I harbor against college life are, 
studying, standing in lunch lines, 
waiting for traffic lights, fight- 
ing my way to the mailbox, 
waking up in the morning, an- 
swering the phone, going to the 
infirmary, listening to long lec- 
tures, taking tests, paying traf- 
fic tickets, and getting girls in 
at 9 p.m. 

If it were my lot to be among 
the perpetual gripers of the 
school, my days and nights could 
be filled to the brim with com- 
plaints unending. 

If the mechanical problems of 
school aren't enough, sometimes 
it rains amd I get my feet wet. 
Other times the weather grows 
cold and this is also unpleasant, 
but somehow I have learned to 
live with both of them. 

Getting down to the crux of 
the matter, the SGA, I often won- 
der why it is that we cannot in- 
itiate a program which might be 
called, "Study Less," which would 
limit each instructor in lecture 
time as well as entirely abolish 

Another potentially feasable 
program could be a rule outlaw- 
ing tests and substituting IQ tests 
for degree applicants. 

Also turning over in my mind, 
is a program which would do a- 
way with Mondays and Fridays, 
but of course, all of these pro- 
grams are tenative and subject to 

One of the big questions which 
I am concerned with however, is 
how in the world could I be pre- 
pared for the profession in stud- 
ent personnel undier a system 
such as this. How would I accum- 
ulate knowledge? How could I 
begin to approach maturity as 
an individual if education came 
in a vending machine. 

Of course, I can't stand study- 
ing, but it is the only way, though 
an unpleasant one, to prepare for 
an useful and productive adult 

Standing in lunch lines makes 
nie feel like a first grader, but 
't is much better than going hun- 
gry. Besides, how else could any 
organization for the production 
°f food cater to two-thousand 
students. This problem too could 

be remedied to a large extent 
if state legislators passed ade- 
quate tax bills. 

Waiting for traffic lights is al- 
so a pain in the neck, but what 
is such a small delay compared 
to the possibility of mangled bod- 
ies scattered on the street. 

The mailbox has gotten to be a 
morning chore. This daily battle 
does help to work off some pent 
up student hostility, but it also 
is nice to get a letter every now 
and then. 

One of the most harrowing 
events in the life of any student 
is waking up in the morning, 
especially when it is to attend 
an early class, but every day has 
to start sometime. 

Usually, every time the phone 
rings, it is another job to do 
and they aren't always very 
glorious. But each of these is an 
opportunity to learn. If the new 
knowledge is not always intel- 
lectual, often a lesson in self 
control is experienced. 

The infirmary is one of my 

legitimate gripes. It is not that 
I mind the infirmary so much, 
but I hate to be sick. The cam- 
pus is rife with tales of persons 
who have been maltreated at this 
institution, but attending the in- 
firmary with a serious illness, is 
much like someone trying to 
cure a bullet wound with a band- 
aid and then being surprised 
when it fails to work 

Listening to long lectures of- 
ten provides opportunities to 
write home, but surprisingly 
enough, lectures are usually given 
by persons who know their field. 
Lectures, however, are a some- 
time unpleasant route to a de- 
sired goal. 

Taking tests is one of the most 
unpleasant aspects of college, 
but if it weren't for this I don't 
think many students, including 
myself, would be able to muster 
the determination to learn any- 

The four traffic tickets which 
I have paid for this year have 
been a painful reminder of the 

acute need for additional park- 
ing space on the campus which 
all ties in with the needed in- 
crease in state funds for higher 

I have found that the adminis- 
tration of the college is alert to 
student needs, and among these 
is the need for proper discipline 
in the interests of the student's 

The overwhelming reason for 
having such a thing as college 
is not that frustrated intellectuals 
might have a soap box to bore 
people from, but that each stu- 
dent might be given the best 
possible conditions under which 
to pursue a higher education. 
This is the reason for the exis- 
tance of the SGA focus ad- 
ministrative attention and concern 
on problems brought forth by 
students and to make the college 
experience the best possible. 

Perhaps you have noticed that 
I left out my last complaint. 
Please leave that to your imagi- 

Something for Christmas 

Local Festival Engenders Spirit 

Thousands thronged the streets 
of downtown Natchitoches Sat- 
urday at the Annual Christmas 
observance. Swinging down Front 
Street and breaking up half-way 
down Second Street, the parade 
delighted thousands of visitors. 

Numerous Santa Clauses threw 
candy to children en route; bands 
rocked to familiar Christmas 
tunes; and floats carried beauties 
from the college, atchitoches 
High School, and the surround- 
ing area. 

Following the parade the river- 
bank, lined with spectators, 
jived to more Christmas music 
and furnished interested vistors 
with an unhurried intermission 
before the actual fireworks. 

At 7 p.m., following the per- 
formance of the Caddo Ski Bees, 
and a performance by the NSC 
band, thousands of dollars worth 
of fireworks were dumped heaven- 
ward 1 and unbelieving students 
and visitors gawked in apparent 

At the close of the fireworks, 
a climactic volley was fireid 
followed by the dramatic unveil- 
ing of the Natchitoches Christmas 
Lights. Hundreds of thousands 
of lights trajnsformed Natchi- 
toches into a fairyland of Christ- 
mas decorations unmatched in 
the state. 

Lining front street are tableaux 
scenes, bells, decorated trees, 
and multifoliate colors, bringing 
quiet memories, etheral specula- 
tion, and the spirit of the 
American Christmas Spirit to all 
who veiwed them. 

Following the spectacle was 
the presentation of the Neil Dia- 
mond Show, by the SGA which 
capped off an evening and day 
of enjoyment for this section of 

The Christmas Festival was 
Wroughtj by the Natchitoches 
Chamber of Commerce and head- 
ed by Irby Knotts, a local office- 

It has been the avowed inten- 
tion of the festival committe to 

bring the real spirit of Christ- 
mas to Natchitoches through 
something special such as the 
Festival, and from this the cele- 
bration has grown into a show 
of beauty and pageantry which 
has amazed persons from all over 
this part of the nation. 

Copperating in the festival 
were student groups grom across 
the state and from the college. 
The NSC marching band took 
part in the parade and was fol- 
lowed closely by the Pom Pan 
girls nd headed by high stepping 

Also contributing with entries 
was the ROTC Corps of the 

Beauties from NSC comprised 
much of the float scenery and 
added much to college prestige. 

The entire effort demonstrated 
the ability of NSC stuudents to 
cooperate in such an effort as 
this demonstration. 


Bruce Kevil, chairman of the 
student services committee which 
presented the proposal for SGA 
acceptance or rejection, headed 
a group favoring the Free Speech 
Alley, saying, "If we the SGA 
don't have the character and 
ability to keep the thing under 
control and functioning as it is 
supposed to then something is 
certainly wrong". 

Frankie Jackson, an observer 
at the meeting, then seemingly 
made up the minds of most of 
the voting members with an im- 
passioned speech, extolling the 
age old virtues of Americanism 
and standing up for what you 
believe is right. 

When the vote came the mea- 
sure passed with room to spare. 

SGA Vice president Bill Fowler, 
chairman of the entertainment 
committee announced an out- 
standing lineup of talent for the 
spring semester and also said 
that there will be five shows 
this semester instead of the 
usual four, at no increase in 
the price of the entertainment 

Entertainment for the spring 
semester will be provided by 
Percy Sledge, Glen Yarborough, 
Gary Puckett and The Union 
Gap, The Beachboys and the Let- 

Students who don't have an 
entertainment booklet will be 
able to attend the Percy Sledge 
show on their identification card. 

Officials Express 
Hope for Forum 

The much talked about Stu- 
dent Government Association 
Forum came off a little short of 
being a resounding success Tues- 
day night but SGA officials gen- 
erally agreed that things went 
about like they expected and ex- 
pressed hope for the future of 
the forum. 

President Arnold Kilpatrick, 
vice president of academic af- 
fairs Dr. Charles Thomas, Dean of 
Students Dudley Fulton and SGA 
members were on hand to field 
questions asked of them by stu- 

The group of some 85 students 
was unresponsive and had to be 
prodded by SGA president Henry 
Burns to ask questions. 

Two of the most active ques- 
tioners were sophomore Ken 
Kavalosky and the ever present 
G. T. Spence who fired questions 
to the administration officials 
ranging from the controversial 
Free Speech Alley to reported 
actions of monitors in various in- 

Members of the controversial 
Student Action Committee were 
strangly silent as Fred McGee 
and Joe Hudson, leaders of the 
organization asked only one 
question between them. 

Many people had speculated 
that the SAC and Negro students 
would take advantage of the 
forum to "put it to" the adminis- 
tration, but this failed to mate- 

Senior class treasurer Scotty 
Maxwell, the founder of the 
forum said that response to the 
expressed the belief that interest 
pected for the first time," and 
the belief that interest in the 
in the forum would increase when 
"the students see that we really 
intend to try and answer their

Another Bull Session? 

With the recent passage of the Free Speech Alley, the 
Student Government Association, headed by Henry Burns, 
proved that cautious consideration before the body is a thing 
of the past. 

Ti* Free Speech Alley, drawn up by a three man com- 
mittee Tails for periodic meetings in which stutlent dis- 
cussion is held oh any topic that happens to be brought, 
from sex to the comparative advantages of soft drinks as 
opposed to milk. 

The very nature of this alley is^such that it ^an be noth- 
ing other than a great big bull session, for it has no aims, 
no real purpose, and no adequate manner of enforcement 
of rules. 

In addition Jp this, tb£ rules themselves are ambiguous 
and contradictory. One topic reads that each stuaenflvill be 
personally responsible for the authenticity of his state- 
ments and would be subject to lawsuit for slander. Later, 
the article reads that no ill effects for anything said will be 
felt by any participant. 

Quite clearly, this cannot under any circumstances be 

In view of current pressure being exerted on the ad- 
ministration for changes in student life by irresponsible 
minority groups, it is not unreasonable to expect that any 
group on the campus could come in force to one of the bull 
sessions and completely dominate discussion by the sheer 
weight of advanced preparation. 

Perhaps it is time that the student body as a whole and 
the Student Government Association in particular gave more 
serious though to the possible implications of its actions and 
thought more of the general welfare of the campus, which 
could scarcely be helped with the existence of one more 
bull session. 

The Student Plight 

As riots spread over the nation, and students begin to 
feel their oats and foment more rebellion, it is in order to 
ask where is it all leading. 

On the eve of the glorious French Revolution the lofty 
purpose was to create a better society, but all ended in tatters 
at the feet of Napoleon. 

On the eve of the Soviet revolution the aim was the free- 
dom of the common man from a Tsarist yoke of oppression. 
It all ended with the Stalinist purges. It was the same in 
Cuba, and will be the same in any place that good ideals are 
furthered in unworthy manners. 

College days are a time when the student feels that he 
should make a contribution to his society and express him- 
self in the betterment scene, but it takes a warped mind 
to believe that social betterment can take place by the 
carrying of signs. 

Those who would follow a sensible course would leave 
the placard bearing to others more spineless than them- 
selves. The betterment of the nation, or in fact, the whole 
world, cannot take place without education and a plan. 

This education cannot take place without discipline and 
discipline will never be found in persons without guts. 

The minority group in today's college scene has seen 
fit to ruin the lives of others by closing universities, and 
forfeiting the very right for an education which they claim 
to fight for with "disruptive action. The simple thing about 
placard carrying is that it involves no intellect; disruptive 
action involves no real responsibility. 

The college student in the 20th Century should examine 
himself and ask, "Do I have the backbone to bear the re- 
sponsibility for what I've done?" and, "Am I taking the 
best possible action available to me?" 




I would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to relate to my fellow 
students some things about our 
student government and elected 

For the last few weeks I have 
been attending the regular meet- 
ings of the SGA and what I have 
seen is something which might be 
called "namby-pambyism," on the 
part of some of our elected stu- 
dent officers. As if this isn't bad 
enough in itself, it seems to re- 
flect a sort of "namby-pambyism" 
on the part of the student body 
is manfested in the lack of partici- 
as a whole, which, to some extent, 
pation in student elections. 

Do the majority of students 
here even know who their class 
officers are? Does this majority 
even know how the SGA func- 
tions? Or even more tragic, do 
they even care? 

To the student who feels that 
the SGA is not fulfilling its 
function, I would like to make 
the following suggestions: 1) 
Active participation iin studeint 
election, whether or not your 
friends are running. 2) A visit to 
an SGA meeting. These meetings 
are open to all students. 3) A 
voicing of your opinions an stu- 
dent government affairs to your 
class representatives. 4) A par- 
ticipation in SGA programs which 
are open to all students,, such as 
the newly formed Free'tSpeech 

Such participation and interest 
would have a good effect iin mak- 
ing student life more interesting, 
but more than that, better for the 
student as a whole.

Diamond Show Pleasing Despite Problems 

By Jay Keppel 

Hard Rock and soul-inspiring 
rythm invaded the jammed floor 
of Prather Coliseum Saturday 
night in the form of Neil Dia- 
mond and his band. The show 
marked the end of the Fall Big 
Name Entertainment Series with 
a rousing hour of song, music 
and banter. 

From the very beginning of 
the performance (it began 50 
minutes late because of a mas- 
sive traffic jam), the show had 
an air of confusion and surprise. 

Despite many of the problems 
which beset the entertainers 
throughout the evening, the 
searching, driving sound that has 
made Neil Diamond the singing 
sensation he is, poured forth in 
unceasing tones. 

Great favorites such as "Red, 
Red Wine," "Brooklyn Road," 
"Solitary Man,'" "Cherry, Cher- 
ry," "Thank The Lord For The 
Night Time," and "Girl You'll Be 
A Woman Soon" reptatedly thrill- 

ed nearly 2000 spectators who 
responded exhuberantly to each 
one of them. 

However all did not go as well 
as it might have if there had been 
a little more planning for the 
show. Initial audio problems 
caused some consternation among 
Diamond and the accompanying 
band members, and the situation 
became more aggravated when 
the entertainers lashed-out ver- 
bally at the technical crew for 
the malfunctions. 

The performers also complain- 
to the audience about the spot- 
lighting, which they deemed less 
than adequate. 

Backstage after the perform- 
ance had ended, audio-visual 
crew members pointed out that 
the difficulties with the sound 
were not their fault at all. As 
one said, "almost any sound sys- 
tem will act-up sometime or 
another, and ours chose tonight. 
We did everything that we could." 

One other unidentified member 

of the crew explained that the 
spotlighting was as good as could 
be expected considering the 
amount of planning which was 
put into it. Normally the enter- 
tainers provide the crew with a 
log to follow if they do not bring 
along their own spotters, but this 
was not the case Saturday. In- 
stead, no form appeared, and the 
band and crew hastily contrived 
a sheet while waiting for the 
show to begin. 

Besides all of the technical 
misfortunes which befell the con- 
cert, some of the between-song 
commentary coming from the 
stage had caused additional woes 
to college officials, SGA mem- 
bers, and townespeople in the 
audience. Mumblings of "profan- 
ity," and "indecent" skittered 
among the throngs filing out of 
the coliseum. 

There was also scattered 
grumbling among the spectators 
regarding the apparent shortness 
of the presentation. Bill Fowler, 

SGA vice-president and head of 
the entertainment committee, 
later advised that the contract 
had been fulfilled. The agree- 
ment was for one hour and ten 
minutes of performing time, and 
the Diamond group met that 
stipulation . 

Generally a performer and his 
touring units or band will split 
the show into halves with an 
intermission in between. How- 
ever, Diamond chose to go 
straight through from start to 

There was no time to interview 
the star after the concert because 
the group was in a hurry to 
catch a plane back to New York 
from Shreveport. Diamond did 
stress that he did not mean to 
be discourteous, but they just 
did not have the time. 

Back on stage the band mem- 
bers were busily packing their 
gear and signing the enevitible 
autograph books. One was stand- 
ing off to the side explaining the 

group's feelings about the "un- 
pleasant" words which were 

"Sometimes," he shrugged, 
"there is a word which fits a 
situation better than any other 
word, right? Tonight was one of 
those times." 

When queried further, he re- 
sponded with "it doesn't matter 
who was at fault with the lights 
and sound, it does matter that 
it creates a bad situation for us 
on stage. It gets hard to do a 
good job when you fight the 
audio and the lights. It's quite 

Despite the unfortunate as- 
pects of the concert, it still rat- 
ed the "best" tag for the fall 
series. Although some people 
were offended, often justifiably, 
a great majority of the viewers 
were quite satisfied with the of-

GSC "Champs" Drop Five Straight 

by David Miller 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

The Demons posted their 
fourth straight loss Monday 
night dropping their first con- 
ference game to the University 
of Southwestern Louisiana at 
Lafayette. The two teams battled 
it out defensivly and recorded 
a low 73-60 score. 

The shooting antics of Bulldog 
Marvin Winkler paced USL in 
it's important win over the 
Purple and White. The 6-1 play- 
maker netted a total of 32 points 
and pulled down 10 rebounds. 

Scoring high for the Demons 
were Jim Pef f er and James Wyatt 
with 17 each. Wyatt also recover-

The 1968-69 Northwestern State

an intersquad meet here Wednes- 
day night. The objective of the 
meet was to determine the pro- 
gress of each individual and the 
team itself. 

According to Coach Armando 
Vega, the Demon Gymnasts are 
showing appreciative improve- 
ment. Vega said, "I am fairly 
happy with the results of the

and is expected to be on the

season begins. 

Some of the Demon gymnast 
will be participating in clinics 
during the Christmas .holidays. 
Several will go to Tuscon, Arizona 
and two will travel to Fort Lau- 
derdale, Florida. 

Coach Vega expressed that he 
would appreciate the support of 
the student body and would like 
to see everyone turn out for all

will be with LSU here on Feb-

will host Northeast State College. 

western in outrebounding the 
Ragin Cajuns 48-40. 

The first two minutes of the 
ballgame passed by scoreless and 
to show the poor shooting done 
by both teams, the score at the 
end of the half was 29-25, USL. 
Neither team could seem to real- 
ly click the way they should. 

The Demon offense was lack- 
ing in penetration power against 
a tight USL 1-3-1 zone defense 
with a 1-2-2 switchup to add con- 
fusion. The NSC five took a great 
deal of valuable time in finally 
setting up a shot with most of 
their baskets coming from "snow- 
birds" or effective fast breaks. 

The charity line was a definite 
factor in the outcome of the 
game with a total number of 37 
fouls called. Three Demon play- 
ers left the game with maximum 
number of fouls with plenty of 
playing time left in the game, 
Charles Bloodworth, Pete Gray, 
and James Wyatt. 

The Demons were cold as ice 
in the second half of the game 
shooting a horrendous 29.4 per 
cent from the field to post a 33.3 
for the game. The Cajuns re- 
corded a 41.7 per cent for the 

At times the contest look like 
a sandlot basketball game with 
complete lack of organization 
and teamwork. Passing and run-

by the Purple and White. The 
only outstanding feature was the 
great desire and hustle that the 
Demons showed up until the final

Lamar Tech is now 5-0 for the 
season having beaten some of 
the top teams around. The Cardi- 
nals defeated Memphis State 
82-62 and downed the Aggies of 
Texas A&M 98-87. 

Lamar was in charge of the 
game up until the last few 
minutes when the Demons came 
from 13 points behind to pull 
within two points. 

The Demons had a poor first 
half shooting 41.9 per cent from 
the field although that was a 
great improvement over 33 per 
cent recorded against USL Mon- 
day night. They ended the half 
down 34-45. 

The man to man defense put 
up by the Cardinals did not give 
the Demons as much trouble as 
the zones that the Purple and 
White cagers have been against 
so far. 

Again the outstanding char- 
acteristic of the Demons was the 
great hustle and determination 
that they possessed throughout 
the game. 

With 26 seconds to play the 
Demons trailed 76-75. Pete Gray 
was fouled and on a one and one 

situation made both shots to give 
the Demons the lead. But the 
cool head Cardinals came through 
in the clutch as the clock ticked 
off the final seconds the Red 
and White managed to account 
for two golden units to send the 
Demons home with their fifth 
straight loss. 

James Wyatt netted high for 
the Demons pushing in 21 points 
and snatching 11 rebounds. Gray 
recorded 18 points. 

Phil Endicott and Earl Dow 
both made 20 points to head 
the Tech scoring department.

home game in Prather Coliseum

Northwestern Lands 
Four All-GSC Picks 

By Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Campus Editor 

Four Demon football players 
copped all-GuM States Confer- 
ence honors in the Louisiana 
Sports Writers Association post 
season selection. 

Two offensive stars, end Al 
Phillips and guard David Cen- 
tanni, and two defensive stand- 
outs, linebacker Lester Latino 
and safety Kenny Hrapmann 
made the dream team. 

Phillips, a junior from Baton 
Rouge, set school records for 
most touchdown catches for a 
season (10), most TD catches 
in one game (three), most catch- 
es for a season (35), and most 
yards gained receiving (642). He 
averaged 18.3 stripes a grab and 
led the league in punt returns 
with a 15 yard average. 

Senior Centanni, tiny as col- 
lege guards go at 188 pounds, 
took the Knockdown Award at 
the Demons' Award Banquet 
with 153. 

Latino, a junior from New Or- 
leans, was credited with most 
tackles on the Northwestern 
squad (72) and garnered three 
honors at the banquet. 

Hrapmann was only one of two 
freshmen to make the honor 
team. He was second in inter- 
ceptions in the GSC with six.

Coach's Poll 
A previous all-GSC poll was 
taken by the conference coaches 
and NSC landed six members on 
the team. Members of the coach's 
team included from Northwest- 
ern: Vic Nyvall, offensive back, 
Shelley Dickie, guard, Randy 
Brodnax, center, Al Phillips, end, 
Walter Elder, defensive guard, 
and Kenny Hrapmann, safety. 

In a recent letter which you 
received from Mr. John Makar. 
some question was raised con- 
cerning press releases from 
Northwestern State College. Mr. 
Makar stated that Dr. C. C. 
Stroud was Head of the Depart- 
ment of Health and Physical 
Education and that the College 
news releases were in error in 
saying that the only heads of the 
department were Dr. Guy W. 
Nesom and Dr. Charles F. Tho- 

We would be the first to agree 
that Dr. Stroud, during his years 
of service from 1924 to 1938, was 
certainly a leader in the field 
and served in many capacities 
here at Northwestern. He was 
indeed a man of great courage, 
infectious spirit, humor and 
modesty. He is still revered here 
at Northwestern for the tremen- 
dous job he did as Director of 
Athletics, Trainer, Director of 
Physical Education for Men, As- 
sociate Professor of History, Pro- 
fessor of Physical Education, 
Basketball Coach and other var- 
ious and sundry duties which he 
so readily accepted. In recog- 
nition of his efforts, Northwestern 
State College dedicated the base- 
ball field to Dr. Stroud and nam- 
ed this field "Stroud Field." How- 
ever, the first person officially 
recognized as Head of the De- 
partment of Health and Physical 
Education was Dr. Guy W. Ne- 
som, as listed in the State Board 
of Education Minutes in Bulletin 
No. 459, June 27, 1941.

Cross Country 
Team Records 
Sixth in District 

The Northwestern State College 
cross country track team record- 
ed a sixth place at the Gulf 
States Conference meet held in 
Hammond, La., last Saturday. Ac- 
cording to Coach John Thomp-

group effort.

the winner of the 4.2 mile race 
with a time of 19:40. Southwest- 
ern won the meet. McNeo}>e, 
Northeastern, La. Tech, and

nedy. Paul Trueman who was 
expected to give McDonald a 
run for his money was unable

weeks ago. 



Quack! Quack! 

by Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Campus Editor 

The sun, although still hid- 
den behind the horizon, casts 
an expectant glow over the wat- 
er. A few dozen decoys ride 
small wave and look like the 
flock they are meant to attract. 
And a shivering hunter (from 
excitement more than the cold) 
flage crouches patiently in a 
clad in hipboots and camou- 
bough covered blind while he 
quacks and whistles alluring 
calls to his prey. 

Suddenly there they are! Thirty 
fat mallards appear out of early 
dawn's grayness and begin re- 
sponding to the sight of the 
"flock" aroud the blind and the 
sounds coming from it. 

Closer, closer they come. The 
wise hunter draws them Within 
30 yards and picks his target. 
He squeezes the trigger and 
BOOM! The lead gneenhead 
crumbles in mid-flight and falls 
dead into the water. 

This will be the scene for to- 
morrow morning for thousands 
of "fanatics" called duck hunt- 

The duck hunter is a special 
breed. He braves rain, cold, wind, 
and early hours to test his call- 
ing and shooting skill against 
nature's waterfowl. Another as- 
pect enters the picture: the sight 
of ducks over decoys with the 
sun just popping up is awesome 
and beautiful.

Miller Is First 
In Southwest JC 
Invitational Meet 

Steve Miller, an Industrial Arts 
major from Shreveport, has re- 
cently won first place at the 
Southwest Jaycee Invitational 
Weightlifting Meet held in Fort 
Smith, Arkansas. Steve also won 
the Oustanding Lifter award for 
the meet. 

Miller won his 198 pounder 
class with a total of 915. He 
pressed 315, snatched 215, and 
in the clean and jerk, 345 pounds. 

The Outstanding Award is de- 
termined by a formula which con- 
siders body weight and age. 
Steve won this award among 
about 30 lifters. 

The trophies given out at this 
meet are only second in size 
to the ones given at the Senior 
National Meet. 

Other members of the team 
are Carl Pearson, Bob Parker, 
and Bill Dean. The team hopes 
to attend a meet in Little Rock, 
Arkansas December 21. 

Miller took third last year at 
the National Collegiate Meet in 
Lafayette, Louisiana. 

regulations of a 20 day season 
with a bag limit of three with 
no more than two mallards or a 
30 day season with the same 
bag limit but only one mallard 
allowed. Louisiana went for the 
longer season with a limit of 
only one mallard. 

No more than two wood ducks 
may be taken daily as is the case 
with black ducks. A possession 
limit of four rules for the two 
species. Only one canvasback and 
one redhead may be taken and 
only one may bbe in possession. 
The daily bag limit is three ducks 
with six in possession. Ten coots 
daily, with a possession limit of 
20 is allowed. All duck hunters 
over 16 years of age are required 
to have a hunting license and a 
duck stamp. 

The LWLFC did move the op- 
ening day back from late No- 
vember to mid December in an 
effort to please the majority of 
sportsmen. The late season pro- 
vides for hunting through the 
Christmas Holidays f,or school

from December 14 through Jan- 
uary 12. Legal shooting time is

Hunting Courtesy 

These are some simple rules 
to follow to allow yourself and 
other hunters a more enjoyable 

1. Do not skyburst. Very few 
ducks are killed at extreme ran- 
ges. Some ducks may be hit but 
do not fall and die in pain lat- 
er from disease. 

2. Make a sincere effort to re- 
trieve all ducks that you knock 

3. Do not make a pig out of your- 
self by claiming every duck that 
you and someone else may have 
shot at the same time. 

5. Do not be boisterous and ruin 
the hunting for anyone else. 

4. Let ducks come in close ran- 
ge for maximum kill and en- 

6. Obsrve common hunting cour- 
tesy and safety at all times. 

7. Observe game laws to protect 
the resource for future use. 

Whether you hunt on Black 
Lake, Catahoula, in the marshes 
of south Louisiana, or in your 
own favorite spot, good luck, and 
do not become a hunting fatality

Corkern Pursues 
Unusual Hobby; 
Meets the Famous 

Bob Corkern, Sophomore Gov- 
ernment major from Bolton High 
School, has followed the unusual 
hobby of celebrity seeking across 
the nation. 

Corkern has been photographed 
with each of this year.s Presi- 
dential hopefuls this year, includ- 
ing Richard M. Nixon, the 
President Elect of the United 
States, Hubert Horatio Humphry, 
Vice President of the United 
States; and Presidential hopeful, 
George C. Wallace. 

In addition to political cele- 
brities, Corkern has been photo- 
graphed with such personages as 
caflptain Ed|die Rickenbacker, J. 
C. Penny, and Martin Luther 
King, who Corkenn stated, seemed 
quite honored. 

One of Corkern aims in search 
for the famous has been the fur- 
therence of his campaign for 
Governor of the State of Louisi- 
ana in 1980. Politically, Corkern 
rates himself as a moderate 
conservative and has set as one 
of his chief aims as a gubernator- 
ial candidate, the improvement 
of state highways. 

As ihe is photographed with 

well-known men, Corkern pro- 
duces a petition which he asks 
them to sign in support of his 
candidacy for governor, and lists 
on his roster of supporters, 
former governors of the state, 
former senators, the Preside/nt 
and many other notables.

Agriculture Head 
Publishes Article 

Dr. Ralph Fell, head of the 
Agriculture Department of 
Northwestern State College, is 
the author of an article which 
appears in the current issue of 
"The Louisiana Cattleman." 

The article is entitled "North- 
western State College Dairy 
Serves Multiple Purposes." Pic- 
tures of the daiiy operation at 
Northwestern are also included 
with the article. 

Fell points out in the article 
that the main purposes of the 
dairy at Northwestern are to 
provide milk for the college 
Cafeterias, to provide part-time 
employment for agriculture stu- 
dents and to provide a means for 
practical laboratory experieuces 
iljor animal science and dairy 

The dairy, one of the largest 
and most modern at any college 
in the state, provides 370 gallons 
of milk for the college's two 
dining halls. Fell also pointed 
out that a new building will soon 
be constructed on the North- 
western campus to help expand 
the agriculture and dairy program 
at the school.

Firearms Sales 
To Be Controlled 
By New Gun Law 

Sales of guns and ammunition 
will be controlled under the new 
Federal gun law which takes ef- 
fect December 16. 

Mr. B. Frank White, Regional 
Commissioner, Southwest Region, 
said IRS is preparing material 
to help gun dealers, gun buyers 
and collectors comply with the 
new Gun Control Act of 1968 
which was enacted by Congress 
in October. 

Mr. White said the new law 
should not place any unreason- 
able restrictions on the purchase 
or ownership of ordinary guns 
used for hunting, target shooting 
or other lawful purposes. 

Persons under 21 will be pro- 
hibited from purchasing pistols, 
revolvers, and ammunition for 
such weapons and persons under 


18 will not be permitted to pur- 
chase any firearms or ammuni- 

Sale will generally not be per- 
mitted to out-of-state residents, 
Mr. White said, although a per- 
son from an adjourning state can 
buy a rifle or shotgun by com- 
plying with certain provisions 
of the new Act. Sales to residents 
of a state will be prohibited if 
possession of the firearm is not 
allowed by local ordinance. 

Summaries of pertinent local 
laws are being compiled in a 
booklet to be mailed by IRS to 
Federally licensed gun dealers. 
The booklet, Publication 603, 
"Published Ordinances-Firearms," 
should be in the hands of dealers 
before December 16, to enable 
them to check on the gun laws 
of a locality before selling a gun. 


Marching Band 
Holds Yearly 
Group Dance 

The Demon Band will hold its 
first annual Christmas party to- 
morrow night from 7-11 O'clock 
at the Tennessee Gas Lodge. 
Music will be provided by "To- 
morrow's Troubles." 

The dance will mark the end 
of the 1968 year, one that has 
been the most effective in the 
unit's history. A wild sojourn 
through Marti Gras, numerous 
\concerts, and the highly suc- 
cessful football marching season 
were just a few of the most out- 
standing performances 

The Band's yearly appearance 
in the Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival parade, followed by a 
stirring concert marked the close 
of the year's festivities.

By Henry Burns 
SGA President 

Christmas, in its truest sense, means a deeply 
rooted love, a love transmitted from God to man 
in the birth of his son, Jesus Christ. 

This eternally significant gift has not only 
given meaning and significance to millions of 
lives, but has been a constant source of serength 
to those who have accepted it. 

As we perceive the simplicity of the manager 
birth and then view the vast array of Christmas 
ornaments, we wonder whether there has been 
a loss of meaning or a misplaced value. 

I am convinced that the heart that is touched 
by Christ today may be rendered as tender, lov- 
ing and compassionate as those whose deeds are 
recorded in the New Testament. 

Christmas is a time to thank God for his 
son and to celebrate the birthday of one who has 
changed the destiny of man. It is a time to be 
especially thankful for the joys and wonders 
which pervade our lives as college students. 

When I think of my family and friends and 
all of the things which God has done for me, 
I am determined that Christ will be in my Christ- 

Let me express my hope that you will have 
a safe journey to your destination and that your 
Christmas and New Year will be all that you have 
ever hoped it to be. 

College To Host Red 
Cross Aquatic Schoo 

Northwestern has been select- 
ed as the host institution for the 
Red Cross Aquatic School to be 
conducted this spring. 

Making the announcement this 
week was Arnold Winkenhoffer 
of Atlanta, Ga., Southeastern 
Area director of the American 
Red Cross. 

The annual clinic for swim- 
ming and water safety instruct- 
ors is being sponsored jointly by 
the Southeastern and Midwest- 
ern areas of the American Red 

More than 100 persons from 
seven states will participate in 
the 10-day session, scheduled 
from May 29 to June 8. States 
sending representatives will be 
Louisiana. Arkansas, Texas, Al- 
abama, Mississippi, Tennessee 
end Oklahoma. 

Dr. Robert Alost, head of the 
physical education department at 
Northwestern, said that although 
the school is being conducted for 
persons in the Southeastern and 
Midwestern Red Cross areas any- 

one in the nation is eligible to 
apply for participation. 

The Red Cross is sponsoring 
the clinic at Northwestern in co- 
operation with the college's 
School of Education and Depart- 
ment of Health, Physical Educa- 
tion and Recreation. 

Alost has been selected to head 
a planning committee for the 
school. Other members of the 
committee from the Northwest- 
ern School of Education are Miss 
Joyce Hillard, Ernest 0. Howell, 
Miss Alice Jarvis and Allen R. 

Serving as director of the pro- 
gram will be Eugene Jones, Mis- 
sissippi Field Representative for 
the Red Cross. Assistant director 
will be Bud Brady, East Texas 
Field Representative. 

Red Cross officials announced 
that the program was conducted 
at Northwestern several times 
during the early 1950's, but the 
last such school held at the col- 
lege was in 1954. 

Letter To 
The Editor 

Dear Sir: 

One of the greatest men North - 
western State College has ever 
known is resigning as Athletic 
Director. Jack Clayton, who has 
distinguished himself as a great 
coach, has decided to leave his 

We would like to take this op- 
portunity to tell you and the 
students of NSC something about 

As a coach his record can not 
be disputed. In 10 years at NSC 
he compiled a record of 58-35-2 
in football. His team won or tied 
for the GSC championship four 
times. He was named "Coach of 
the Year" in 1966 after his De- 
mon team was 9-0. 

That same school year, 1967, 
he coached the baseball team to 
the championship with a 24-11 
record. For the second time he 
was named "Coach of the Year". 
In his second season as baseball 
coach he led the team to a second 
place finish. Had it not been for 
injuries to certain players, he 
might have repeated the feat. 

For those of us who have play- 
ed under him, he was a great per- 
son. He had the ability to get the 
most out of his players. For 
those who did not play under 
his coaching you could not fully 
appreciate his kindness and feel- 
ings toward his athletes. He 
would make you feel as if you 
were a big part of the team. 
When he talked he made every- 
one feel like they were some- 
thing special. To him, it seemed, 
your problems were his. He 
would discuss anything with you 
and help you solve your prob- 
lems if he could. 

The athletes who played un- 
er Coach Clayton have been con- 
versing with him for many years. 
It seems no one can forget him. 
This is, of course, a reflection on 
his coaching ability. 

As far as we are concerned, 
NSC is losing its greatest ath- 
letic asset in its history. After 
11 years a great man must step 
down. To us it is more than the 
losing of a great coach. It is 
the losing of a friend and a com- 
panion — someone to converse 
with, someone to trust, someone 
to love. 

In our hearts, we, as captains 
of the baseball team, would like 
to express our thanks to Coach 
Clayton for all he has done for 
us. We would also like to wish 
him the very best of luck in 
whatever he encounters in the 

We, along with many, many of 
the athletes who have been as- 
sociated with him will alway re- 
member Jack Clayton.

Campus Security Searching For 
Vandals Following Theft of Letters 

Campus Security is following 
up several leads in search for 
the three stolen letters from the 
almost-new NSC sign at the en- 
trance to the campus. 

The three letters, O, R, and S, 
were taken from the top of the 
sign sometime between 1:45 and 
2:05 Saturday morning, according 
to Chief of Campus Security 
James Lee. One of the security 
officers that regularly patrol 
the campus passed the sign at 
both times and discovered the 

theft on the second trip. 

The vandals had no difficulty 
in removing the lettres during 
the 10 minutes between patrols 
as they were fastened by only 
one bolt at the base. Campus 
Security later removed the rest 
of the letters in "NORTHWES-

Basketball Crew Tries For 3rd Win Tonight 

by Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Campus Editor 

Northwestern will attempt to grab win number three 
against Southwest Baptist Friday night and keep a two-game 
winning streak alive. The Demons whipped Southwest Texas 
and Louisiana College after a horrendous five-game loosing 
skein to open the season. 

Coach Jim Dudley's team from Bolivar, Mo., will bring 
a 4-5 record into the contest. NSC is 2-5 and 0-1 in the Gulf 
States Conference. 

Southwest Baptist likes to run 
and is led by the shooting and 
rebounding of 6'7" pivot man 
Jess Horner. Horner, a product 
of Minden, is averaging 22 points 
and 17 rebounds a game. Another 
6'7" rebounder, Tom Beer, gives 
added height to the starting five. 
Guard Ronnie White and Mike 
Sanders are fine ballhandlers 
with White having chipped in 
16 assists for his game high total. 
Six-two forward Ron DeGraffen- 
reid is the other starter. Sixth 
man Jim White will probably see 
action before the night is over. 

The Purple and White will 
counter with probable starters 
James Wyatt and Charles Blood- 
worth at forwards, Pete Gray in 
the middle, and Jim Peffer and 
Doug Watts at guards. 

Wyatt (18.3), Gray (15.4), 
Bloodworth (12.4), and Peffer 
(11.1) are all averaging in double 
figures. Watts is shooting a norm

intramural play. On their way 
to the finals, BSU defeated Kap- 
pa Sigma in the quarterfinals, 
and the Monarchs in the semi- 
final game. 

The AMS Super Stars and the 
Rejects also fell to the runner-up 
Hooking Bulls during playoff 

Although the final game was 
fairly close for the first half, 
BSU clearly dominated their op- 
ponents throughout the match. 
BSU led 14-13 after the first 
stanza, and was able to increase 
the lead to 28-22 by the end of 
the half. 

For the remainder of the con- 
test, the Hooking Bulls seemed 
to have trouble finding the nets, 
as BSU increased the final mar- 
gin to 17 points. 

Members of the championship 
team are Gary McCune, Jerry 
Odum, Pat Greer, Larry Bazer, 
Ozzie Hollingsworth, Bill Prather, 
and Bob Lash. 

The runner-up team is com- 
posed of Bart Stewart, Bob Du- 
falo, Johnny Creed, Dick Creed, 
David Carnline, Paul Zoller, Rob- 
ert Fowler, Doug Beard, and Le- 
Roy Husser. 

With basketball now ended, 
intramural competition will focus 
on weight-lifting, which will be 
held during the jjirst of the 
spring semester.

Janese is averaging 6.1. 

The 6'5" Wyatt leads in re- 
bounding with 15 grabs a game 
and 6'8" Bloodworth is averaging 
eight a game. 

The game will be played in the 
Men's Gym due to the refinishing 
of the hardwood at Prather. The 
Javees get underway at 5:30 
against Lake Charles AAU and 
the varsity tipoff is at 7:30. 
Win Number Two 

The Demons chalked up win 
number two Monday night against 
the home team Louisiana College 
Wildcats. The 72-67 win brought 
Northwestern to 2-5 on the year 
and dropped LC to the same 

The Purple and Whit opened 
up a 13-1 lead at the outset of 
the game. The wildcats missed 
their first eight floor attempts 
before 6'8" 'Cat center, Billy 
Jones, connected on a 20-foot 

LC closed the gap 35-32 at the 
break on the basis of some hot 
outside shooting by Jones, sharp- 
shooting forward David Mitchell 
and 5'9" guard Gary LaCaze. 

Jones ripped the nets for a 
game high 20 points and was 
the rebound leader with 16. NSC 
had four players in double figur- 
es: Pete Gray (14), James Wyatt 
(14), Charles Bloodworth (13) 
and Doug Watts (11). 

The Cats ripped off seven 
straight points to open the second

half and went ahead for the first 
time 39-35. 

The Demons came back behind 
Bloodworth and went ahead to 
stay with 9:51 remaining. Blood- 
worth fouled out at that point 
and Jones, then the tallest man 
on the floor, scored seven before 
he fouled out with 3:27 left. 

Pete Gray had his second 
straight good game and sixth 
man Johnny Janese played his 
best game of the year. Gray was 
effective on drives, while Janese 
hit for nine points and played 
tenacious defense. 

The game was marred by ques- 
tionable calls against both sides. 
The 'Cats hit two more field goals 
than NSC but the Demons con- 
verted 28 free throws for the 
margin of victory. 

Northwestern continued to im- 
prove on defense but again shot 
a cool 33 per cent and could 
not find the open man with their 

passing. They only recorded five 

Rebounding was again a strong 
point for the Demons as they 
grabbed 50 carooms against LC's

LC's Kittens 92-82 to up their 
record to 4-2.

night in their home debut this 
season. The feminine cagers host 
Arkansas Southern State at 7 
o'clock in the Men's Gym. 

The girls are coming off a 8-2

been doing a tremendous job in 
practice and all they need is to 
settle down and play like they 
are capable of. 

There will be no admission 
charge at tonight's game and 
everyone is urged to attend and 
support the girl round bailers.

North Louisiana Supplementary 
Center Establishes Teaching Site 

The North Louisiana Supple- 
mentary Education Center at NSC 
has announced the establishment 
of 18 Demonstration Teaching 
Centers to serve a 35-parish area 
of the state. 

Howard P. McCollum, director 
of the center, said the demonstra-

Louisiana and among the first in 
the nation. 

McCollum said the purpose of 
the centers is to develop and de- 
monstrate exemplary programs in 
science, mathmatics, conservation, 
outdoor education and recreation. 

The centers are organized in 
facilities provided by 36 schools 
in the North and Central sections 
of Louisiana. 

Salaries- of the demonstratiom 
teachers and cooperating teachers 
in the participating schools are 
supplemented by the education 
centers at Northwestern and the 
center also provides, in most in- 
stances, additional equipment and 
instructional materials. 

Model programs in the five 
study areas covered by the center 
are demonstrated to teachers, 
school administrators, supervisors 
school board members and other 
interested citizens. 

Consultants from Northwestern 
and other colleges, local, state and 
federal agencies and industry are 
also invited to work with the de- 
monstration centers. 

In addition, special consultants 
and supervisors from the State 
Department of Education assist

CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN on the new three-story biology building to be located east of the New 
Men's dorm. It will include, among other things, a large amphitheater lecture room which will seat 
126 students, a teacher museum, and large research area for both staff members and students. The 
facilities, according to Dr. William G. Erwin, head of the Biology Department, are badly needed and 
will greatly improve the research and educational projects now going on. Construction should be 
completed by the fall of 1970. 



It is a sincere privilege for me 
to extend a warm welcome to 
both the new and returning stu- 
dents for the spring semester of 

We at Northwestern State Col- 
lege have many things of which 
we are, proud, but our greatest 
source of pride is you, the stu- 
dent body. 

Northwestern has long had the 
reputation of being the friend- 
liest college in the nation. I feel 
certain that this cordial and 
friendly asmosphere will mean 
as much to you during your col- 
lege career as it has to the 
thousands who have gone before 

The administration, faculty and 
staff of Northwestern urge you 
to work with us in our common 
goal to keep this college at the 
forefront of education in the 
South, a position that Northwest- 
ern has enjoyed for many years. 

Please feel free to call on us 
at any time we may be of assist- 
ance to you, and once again, we 
welcome you to Northwestern 
State College. 


Arnold R. Kilpatrick 

As we at Northwestern begin 
a new semester, we look forward 
to helping each other accomplish 
the goals we seek in college. The 
faculty and administration are 
pledged to assist students in their 
pursuit of knowledge, and stu- 
dents are ready to greet the new 
semester with enthusiasm and 
self-determination to make this 
the most successful semester of 
their college careers. 

With tnis determination to 
suceed, both the faculty and stu- 
dents — cooperating with frequent 
conferences and individual as- 
sistance — can maintain the friend- 
ly, professional balance that pro- 
vides excellent education. 

Every faculty member and 
every member of the adminis- 
trative staff is eager to assist 
students as they seek the train- 
ing they will use the rest of 
their lives. We, therefore, wel- 
come the students back for a new 
semester and express the confi- 
dence that our study body will 
assist us in making this the best 
semester yet.

Debate Team Represents NSC 
In New Orleans Tournament 

Two NSC debate teams return- 
ed this week after a four-day 
tournament in New Orleans. 

Carolyn Hazel of Lake Charles 
and Sherry Buckner of Shreve- 
port won four of their eight 
rounds, while Preston Payne of 
Leesville and David Precht of 
Jennings had a 3-5 record. 

One of the most popular and 
best organized tournaments in 
the United States, the Mardi 
Gras Invitational featured "pow- 
er-matched" debate pairings made 
by computer. (Each of the Tu- 

is a freshman journalism major 
from Alexandria. 

Manuel Chavez of Albequerque, 
N.M., will serve during the 
spring as campus editor in Rol- 
lins' former post. He is a junior 
majoring in journalism, and for- 
merly contributed articles for the 
Current Sauce. 

Chavez will also be in charge 
of editing Greek News from the 
various fraternities and sororities 
in addition to reporting club 
and organizational functions. 

Feature Editor Bessie Brock 
will contribute articles of human 
interest about student and faculty 
members on campus. Also a 
journalism major, Bessie is a 
freshman from Mora. 

Four staff reporters have been 
assigned to the Current Sauce 
this semester. All four are jour- 
nalism majors. They are David 
Jett, Hornbeck; Jack Bailey, 
Alexandria; Denny Dodd, Vidalia; 
and Gary Morgan, Alexandria. 

Al Savoie will remain busi- 
ness manager for the schoxfl 
paper, and James R. Parrish will 
continue to serve as faculty ad- 

lane Computers costs $100 per 
hour to run.) 

The debate rounds were held 
on the Tulane campus in New- 
Orleans, with the Glendyburke 
Society, a completely student-run 
debate organization, handling 
the arrangements. 

In compiling their 4-4 record, 
Hazel and Buckner met some of 
the strongest teams in the na- 
tion, including Cornell, Ottawa, 
and Iowa State. 

A total of 224 speakers com- 
peted from 86 various schools in 
the tournament. These schools 
represented such diverse areas 
of the country as U.C.L.A. from 
Calif., Florida State, and the 
University of Pennsylvania. 

In addition to representing re- 
mote areas these teams also in- 
cluded some of the best debators 
in the United States. 

Building Named 
For V. L. Roy 

Roy Hall is the name approved 
by the State Board of Education 
for the Administration Building 
at NSC. It was named in honor 
of the late Victor Leander Roy, 
former president of the college. 

Roy, who died Sept. 7, 1968, at 
the age of 97, became president 
of the college in 1911 when it 
was a two-year institution. North- 
western was elevated to four- 
year college status in 1918 while 
he was president. 

The Administration Building, 
completed at a cost of more than 
$500,000, has been in use since 
the spring of 1965.

Do You Think So? 


The 'Mini' 

A number of people were in- 
terviewed this week to determine 
their opinions concerning the 
question, "What do you think of 
mini-skirts?" Most males inter- 
viewed were enthusiastic, while 
the girls weren't. However, there 
were a few . . . 

"I don't think they should 
be worn; at least not in public 
places. They are allright in the 
home."— Brenda Taichman, Zach- 
ary, La. 

"I like them. They give a 
better showing of the attitude 
and true personality of the fe- 
male sex." — Webber Neal, Frank- 

"Dang right! It gives you a 
better view of what's hanging 
around." — Miles McNeely, Horn- 

"Yes, I like them because I 
admire a good pair of legs." — 

James Hoffman, DeRidder. 

"I don't like them. They're 
cold in the winter. — Bernice 
Gabor, Leesville. 

"I think they're sexy and I

Give 18-Year Olds The Vote! 

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Although it 
is not the policy of the Current 
Sauce to reprint articles written 
by those other than staff mem- 
bers, the following by the College 
Press Service should be of special 
interest to a student body con- 
sisting of a majority of students 
less than 21 years of age.) 

The history of efforts to lower 
the voting age is full of frus- 
tration and failure, dating back 
to 1942 when Sen. Arthur Van- 
denberg introduced the first re- 
cent resolution to extend the fran- 
chise. In that session, Congress 
lowered the draft-induction age 
to 18, but refused to lower the 
voting age. 

Since then, more than a hun- 
dred similar resolutions have 
been bottled up by the nations 
lawmakers. Despite President 
Eisenhower's support in 1954, a 
proposed Constitutional amend- 
ment lowering the voting age 
failed by five votes. In the last 
session of Congress, well-mean- 
ing liberals let another bill die 
without a fight after President 
Johnson spoke up favorably but 
too late. 

The 18-year old vote issue has 
also been raised at least once in 
each of the states, but the voters 
have consistently said no. Only

in Kentucky and Georgia have 
efforts been successful. 

The long struggle for the 18- 
year old vote has also been mark- 
ed by lack of organization and 
resources. There has been no 
notionwide movement at the 
grass-roots level to demonstrate 
youth's initiative and influence. 

"The nub of practical politics 
is that without assurances from 
organized college-aged groups 
that 19 to 21 year olds really 
want the franchise, chances of 
passage are dim," Sen Jacob 
Javits has said. Young people 
have decided to take his advice 

In the last month two groups 
have formed to start a nation, 
wide push for passage of laws 
lowering the age to vote. One, 
begun by students from the Uni- 
versity of the Pacific in Califor- 
nia, and launched on a television 
special with Joey Bishop, is call- 
ed LUV (Let U s Vote). It claims 
chapters on more than 200 col- 
lege campuses and 1,500 high 

Another handful of young 
people, from National Education 
Association's student affiliate, 
have formed a Youth Franchise 
Colition. With the support of 
other student groups, they claim 
to be the first national organiza- 
tion working toward the 18-year 
old vote. 

The Coalition's campaign to 
lower the voting age will aim at 
passage of a Constitutional 
amendment and changes in state 
statutes and charters. Dirck 
Brown, an early Coalition leader, 
explains that an effort at the 
state level will make ratification 
of the new Constitutional amend- 
ment easier. 

One of the "hack issues" of 
past campaigns that the students 
hope to redefine is the "Old 
enough to fight, old enough to 
vote" argument which has had 
wide enotional appeal in war- 

"Apparently it takes war to 
open the eyes of America to the 
injustice she does her young 
men," R. Spencer Oliver of the 
Young Democrat Clubs of Ameri- 
ca has said. "It is surely unjust 
and discriminatory to command 
men a sacrifice their lives for a 
decision they had no part in 

While to some the prospects 
look bright, the realitites of the 
situation suggest that the 18-year 
old vote is far off. Coalition 
leaders expect only Senate pas- 
sage by the end of 1969. 

House passage will come only 
after much difficulty. Even the 
new amendment would have to 
be ratified by the legisatures of 

Over the years, Current Sauce 
staffs have come and gone. Some 
have served Northwestern longer 
than others. Nevertheless, each 
has left its mark upon the stu- 
dent body. 

Some were racked with con- 
troversy, while others approach- 
ed student life with disinterested 
accounts of campus events. Stu- 
dents have been enthusiastic 
about some staffs while deplor- 
ing others. None have been ig- 

The criterion for a good stu- 
dent newspaper is reader interest. 
It we, the 1969 staff of the Cur- 
rent Sauce can attain that peak 
of reader interest from the Stu- 
dent Body, then our objectives 
will have been fulfilled. 

Keeping in mind that objec- 
tive, we hope to provide our 
audience with timely, accurate, 
and in-depth coverage of events 
on the Northwestern campus. 
Human interest will also play a 
vital role in our reporting. 

Students with unusual hob- 
bies (see NSC's Gary Boucher, 
page 6), pastimes, skills or abili- 
ties will be featured in hopes 
that you will become better ac- 
quainted with your fellow stu- 

Students as well as faculty 
members who have made news- 
worthy accomplishments will not 
be overlooked. Student elections 
will be reported as thoroughly as 
possible with an unbiased slant 
on the respective election races. 

This is not to say that editorial 
opinion will be non-existent. Cur- 
rent Sauce staff members will, 
from time to time, express their 

views about problem areas sur- 
rounding campus life. But, the 
criticism expressed herein will 
be mature, constructive criticism, 
and will always be accompanied 
by a proposed solution to the 
problems discussed. 

No specific group or groups 
representing various factions of 
the student body will be favored 
by either our editorials or news 
reporting. Yet, those who war- 
rant news coverage will not be 
slighted by insufficient report- 

Our sports staff will work to 
provide you with interesting (and 
slightly prejudiced) accounts of 
Northwestern's spring sports 
competition. These will be ac- 
companied by related comments 
and interpretations of the rea- 
sons for our success or lack of 

Clubs and organizations will 
receive due representation oi 
their activities from the cam- 
pus news staff. 

Students will also be informed 
whenever possible about occupa- 
tional opportunities of special in- 
terest to seniors and graduate 

In short, what we are hoping 
to provide is a student news- 
paper, for students, about stu- 
dents, and by students. 

This is not to say that these 
considerations have not been ob- 
served in the past. But it IS an 
expression of what you may ex- 
.pect as a student reader from the 
Current Sauce staff during the 

You can love us ... or hate 
us. Just so you READ us! 

Student Politics Makes Gains 

The relatively high stimulus 
factor of the election of 1968 has 
increased political group parti- 
cipation among many formerly- 
disinterested persons. 

Although political participa- 
tion should be a privilege to all 
American citizens, it should es- 
pecially be appealing to the col- 
lege student. 

The organization of a Young 
Republicans group has helped to 
generate political interest in a 
generally apathetical student 
body of Northwestern State Col- 
lege. For $1.50, a person can be- 
come a full-fledged member en- 
titling him to attend all the 
group meetings and to work on 
the committee of his choice. 

This is not a plea for everyone 
to join the Republican party. The 
idea is for the organization of 
similar interest groups among 
students with others who share 
their ideas about politics, etc. 

The most common excuse off- 
ered by the disinterested student 
is that his ideas are immaterial 
when compared to those of 
larger and more organized press- 
ure groups. 

The only way to end domina- 
tion of these groups, if they do 
exist, is participation by a great- 
er percentage of the public. The 
student body will be the voting 
public of tomorrow; so it is never 
too early to take an interest in 
our country or our school.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to express my 
opinion concerning the women's 
dorm hours. In the first place, a 
girl must attain junior status be- 
fore she may stay out until 11 
p.m. any night of the week. 

I feel that freshmen should be 
restricted to certain dating hours 
because they are still adjusting 
to the change from parental 
supervision to dorm life, but after 
a year of college life they should 
be allowed a few privileges other 
than an extra date night, instead 
of having to wait until their 
junior year. 

Also, many upperclassmen 
living in "freshman" dorms must 

forfeit 30 minutes each weeknight 
because the dorms close at 10:30 
p.m. Maybe 30 minutes isn't that 
much time and wouldn't make 
that much difference, but it is 
an upperclassman's privilege to 
remain out every weeknight un- 
til 11 p.m. 

The change in the Saturday 
night curfew promised in the 
elections last spring was much 
needed and surprisingly was de- 

I think that it is time for more 
radical changes, but they will 
require the support of a rather 
apathetic student body and the 
approval of the administration.

Hennigan Writes 
For A-V Journal 

Thomas L. Hennigan, director 
of the audio-visual center here, 
is the author of an article which 
appears in the current issue of 
the Louisiana Audio-Visual As- 
sociation Journal. 

The article, entitled "North- 
western State College Audio 
Visual Center," points out the 
many uses and values of the 
college's extensive educational 
television setup in the new Arts 
and Sciences Building. 

Hennigan, who is coordinator 
of the instructional television 
program at Northwestern, shows 
in the. article how NSC has used 
its audio-visual center to cope 
with problems such as increasing 
enrollment and teacher shortages. 

Complete with several photo- 
graphs, the article tells how the 
audio-visual center has grown 
from a meager beginning in 1955 
to a large-scale campus service 
now including five divisions of 
operation-film library, graphic 
production, photographic produc- 
tion, instructional television, and 
academic services. 

The journal is the official pub- 
lication of the Louisiana Audio- 
Visual Association and is publish- 
ed three times each school year.

By Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

Do you remember when North- 
western opened the basketball 
season with a five game losing 
skid? Do you remember when 
Southwestern pinned a 73-60 loss 
on the Demons in the middle of 
the losing streak? And do you 
remember the ridicule heaped 
on the team, especially after "ex- 
perts" picked the Purple and 
White to win the Gulf States 

Well whipe it from your 
memory, the Demons have AR- 

They have arrived in a fashion 
that has swept 12 out of 14 op- 
ponents off their feet. They have 
scored a spectacular 86-84 over- 
time decision here Tuesday 
over the team that has given 
them their only conference set- 
back. And they did it before 
3,500 frenzied fans who had 
nothing but praise for the tre- 
mendous effort. 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand. using 
only five superbly conditioned 
players, picked up his sixth con- 
ference victory which left each 
teams' loss record at one each 
in the league. The Bulldogs are 
now 8-1 in conference action. 

Led by the determined efforts 
of Charles Bloodworth and James 
Wyatt — the twosome combined 
for 47 points and 36 rebounds — 
Northwestern put itself in a posi- 
tion to win or tie f or the league 

All of the starters hit in double 
figures, with Wyatt's 24 and 
Bloodworth's 23 heading the 
pack. Pete Gray, hitting clutch 
outside baskets, netted 15 and 
Johnny Janese and Doug Watts 
chipping in 13 and 11 respective- 

Bloodworth, ramming home 9 
of 12 from the field and domi- 
nating the backboards with a 
game high of 20 rebounds, play- 
ed perhaps his finest game as 
a Demon.

ners, scored 16 caroms and needs 
only 98 rebounds for a new career 
GSC record. If he averages 14.0 
grabs a game for the remaining 
seven outings, he will crack form- 
er Southeastern great, C. A. 
Core's standard of 1475 rebounds. 

A tight see-saw battle through- 
out the game resulted in a regu- 
lation time, 76-76 deodlock, al- 
though both teams threw away 
chances to win in the final min- 

USL scored first in the over- 
time, but like the last 14 games, 
the Demons fought back and went 
ahead to stay when Bloodworth 
stashed away a three point play 
with 1:55 left in the extra period. 

The Imps continued their win- 
ning streak with a 120-113 win 
over Hutton-Donaldson of Shreve- 
port. The JV's have run off a 
streak of 11 games without a 
loss — one of the games being a 
tie. The junior varsity own a 
13-3-1 season slate. 

Wayne Lee led the seven play- 
ers who hit in double figures 
for the Imps with 22 points. He 
was followed by Jim Krafefska 
with 15, Randy Veuleman and 
Stanley Lee 14, Andy Marusak 
and Truman Johnson, 13, and 
Don Ashworth 12. 

Even though Northwestern has 
evened up the loss column rec- 
ords, they are not home free in 
the GSC race. The Demons still 
'nave to p<lay league contests 
with Nicholls, Southeastern, 
Northeast, La. Tech and McNeese. 

McNeese hosts the Purple and 
White in what is always a tough 
road game Friday. The Cowboys 
are 8-9 overall and 3-5 in the 
conference. Their latest loss came 
at the hands of La. Tech — an 
86-70 setback on the Tech floor. 

George Boyd leads the defense- 
minded 'Poke attack with 15.6 
points a game and an average of 
10.8 rebounds. 

Ron Buckley, 11.4, Kent An- 
drews, 9.3, John Hawkins, 6.0 
and Larry Zeringue round out the 
usual starting five. However, 
sub George Murphy has popped 
in 32 points in his last two games 
and may see starting duty.

explained as, "I got the ball out- 
side with just a few seconds left 
and I saw two men coming at 
me and heard the crowd yell, so 
I put it up." 

The Demons, not hitting on all 
cylinders, battled back from a 
47-38 halftime deficit. They never 
led in the first period. 

James Wyatt was again high 
man in rebounding and scoring 
as he had 23 points and gathered 
21 rebounds. Pete Gray netted 19 
and Charles Bloodworth got 14 
points and 13 richotes although 
he fouled out with 8:24 remain- 
ing. Janese hit eight and the other 
starter, Doug Watts, collected 

All-Gulf States Conference con- 
tender Phil Driskill of Nicholls 
rammed home 18 in 30 minutes 
of play before departing by way 
of fouls. 

Northwestern's fourth straight 
win hiked its season record to 
11-7 and 5-1 in the GSC. Nicholls 
suffered its 10th loss against six 
wins and its sixth loss without 
a victory in the conference. 

The Imps continued their win- 
ning ways with a record-breaking 
143- 103 win over Smith's Fur- 
niture of Shreveport. 

The 143 points scored was a 
new Prather Coliseum record 
along with a 72 point first half 

The JV's pull 11 men in the 
scoring column with seven hit- 
ting for double figures. 

Stanley Lee's 80 per cent shoot- 
ing from the floor and 25 points 
paced the attack. He was follow- 
ed by Jim Krajefska, 23, Andy 
Marusak, 16, Truman Johnson 
and Randy Veuleman, 14 and 
Jimmy Stewart and John John- 
son, 12. 

NSC 88, SLC 76 

Jumping James Wyatt and big 
Charles Bloodworth combined 
for 37 points and 41 rebounds — 
one less rebound than the en- 
tire Southeastern team — to pro- 
pel Northwestern past the Lions, 
88-76, in Hammond Jan. 29. 

It was the second win of a two- 
game road trip that put the De- 
mons' record at 10-7 and 4-1 in 
the Gulf States Conference. SLC's 
record fell to 4-14 and 2-3 in the 

Wyatt led the way with match- 
ing figures — 25 points and 25 ca- 
roms. Playmaking Doug Watts 
netted 15 and Pete Gray and 
Bloodworth hit for 12. Johnny 
Janese got seven with back-up 
men Odis Faust, Jerry Masters 
■and Carlton Walding combining 
for 17. 

NSC 106, South Miss. 99 

A blistering running game that 
produced 106 points against home 
team University of Southern Mis- 
sissippi, powered the Demons to 
a 106-99 win Jan. 27. NSC's win 
halted a Southern win streak at 

Northwestern shot a torrid 52.7 
per cent from the field while 

putting six men in double figures. 
James Wyatt led the pack with 
21 points and 18 rebounds. He 
was followed by Johnny Janese 
with 19, Pete Gray 18, Charles 
Bloodworth and Doug Watts 14, 
and Carlton Walding 10. Odis 
Faust and Jerry Masters had 
eight and two respectively to 
round out the scoring. 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand's run- 
ning game plan was executed 
brilliantly by Watts and Janese 
who combined for 33 points and 
nine assists. 

It was a bruising, hard fought 

scrap from the tipoff although 
the Purple and White took ad- 
vantage of fatigued Southern's 
shooting slump near the end to 
put the game away. 

The win brought NSC's record 
to 9-7 while dropping Mississippi 
to 9-9. 

The Northwestern junior var- 
sity brought its slate to 10-3-1 
with a comeback 97-88 triumph 
over the Southern's JV's. 

Jim Krajefska paced the Imps 
with 22 points and was followed

W Club Slates 
Meet This Week 

By Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

Eighteen colleges and universities and some 60 high 
schools will participate in the Fifth Annual Graduate "N" 
Club Indoor Track and Field Meet held Friday-Saturday, 
Feb. 7-8 in Prather Coliseum. The high school competition 
will be run off Friday with the college division competing 

Records are in danger in six 
of the 12 scheduled events. 

Loaded with blue-chip talent, 
Little Rock (Ark.) Central has 
a solid shot at standards in the 
60-yard hurdles, 440-yard dash, 
880-yard run and the mile relay. 

Central is led by hurdler-sprint- 
re Phil Herndon who is the lead- 
ing contender in the high hurd- 
les and the quarter dash. Herndon 
toured the quarter in 47.9 last 
spring, four and a half seconds 
under the record set by Gary 
Bell of Lake Charles last year. 

Central's Lamar Howard turned 
in a 1:57.6 last spring in the half 
mile and could easily shatter the 
old record of 2:00.8. 

The Central quartet ran a fine 
3:16.0 in the mile relay last 
year which is a whopping 20.3 
seconds under the existing rec- 

Fair Park distance ace, John 
McKinnon, has bettered the ex- 
isting mile run record with his 
4:13.0 last year. He won the 
Sugar Bowl mile for prepsters 
six weeks ago in New Orleans. 
The existing mile record was 
set by Owen Self at 4:19.3. 

Richard Lewis, a Natchitoches 
product, has bettered Larry Ash- 
ley's 13-7 in the pole vault and 
he will be the leading contender. 

College Division 

The college division is led by 
versatile Johnny Morriss of the 
University of Houston who will 
compete in the hurdles and the 
high jump. He tied the old rec- 
ord of 7.2 in the 60-yard highs 
and cleared 6-6 last year in the 
high jump. 

In addition to Morriss, 440- 
yard dash winner Bill Cramer

of Stephen F. Austin and broad 
jump champion Gary Groff from 
Tulane will compete again this 

Cramer won the quarter mile 
in 51.2 seconds alst year but has 
a 46.8 clocking to his credit. Tony 
Pickett of Houston has also 
matched the 46.8 mark and with 
Cramer will be favored to break 
the old record of 50.3. 

Groff soared 23-8y 2 in the 
broad jump in 1968 and is favor- 
ed to win that event. He has 
jumped a foot farther than his 
winning distance last year, but 
he has been hampered by in- 
juries since last spring. 

Groff will also be a top entry 
in the 60-yard dash with a 6.2 
time. However, Andrew Hopkins 
of SFA, who finished third with 
a 6.4 last year, and Southern 
State's Archie Walker both have 
had 6.1 performances previously 
and will be the favorites. 

Harding's Jim Crawford won 
the mile in 4:17.6 last year, but 
several contestants have bettered 
that time, including Crawford, 
who owns the best time with a 

Houston's Leonard Hilton has 
the best time in the two mile, 
with a 9:00.6. 

Jim Sauers of Florida State 
and Ricky Truax of McNeese 
have matched Morriss' 6-7 high 

Northwestern holds the favor- 
ite in the shot put in Larry

heave of 57-10.

Vega Enthusiastic Over 
Chance As Gymnastic 

By Jack Bailey 
Current Sauce Sports Writer 

"We stand a very good chance 
of becoming NAIA and NCAA 
champions this year", stated 
gymnastic coach Armando Vega. 

The Northwestern gymnastics 
team has been the winner of 
the NAIA three years in a row 
— a feat unequalled by any other

John Ellas, Coach Vega states, 
is one of the top performers 
not just in the South, but in the 

The team won their last meet 
over Louisiana State-New Orleans 
by a score of 157.9-129.5. Coach 
Vego feels that his team is hamp- 
eired by the lack of support 
from the Student Body and es- 
pecially at home meets. 

"The stands in the gym should 
be filled", criticized Vega, "yet 
they are nearly empty at our 

He is sure, though, that in the 

future many of the gymnasts 
who attend the Olympics will 
be from Northwestern.

Watts Engineers High Scoring 
Demon Offensive Floor Game 

By Bobby Hyams 
Sports Correspondent 

Doug Watts, Northwestern's 
5-10 junior guard, doesn't happen 
to be the Demons' leading scorer 
and is not exactly setting the 
pace in rebounding, but never- 
theless he has substantially con- 
tributed to NSC's success this 

Doug's playmaking, leadership 
and passing ability, items which 
fail to show up on the statistics 
sheet, have been an invaluable 
part of the Demons' floor game 
this year.

Northwestern State girl's

will be a key man for the De- 
mons as they try to capture the 
Gulf States Conference crown. 

Watts, a two-time all-starter, 
was better known for his scoring 
ability in high school. Leading 
French Settlement to the finals 
in his junior year and to the 
state championship the next sea- 
son, Watts had the reputation 
as one of the finest outside 
shooters in the state and was 
considered by many observers to 
be the finest guard prospect in 
Louisiana basketball in the 165- 
66 season. 

After being corralled by NSC 
Coach Tynes Hildebrand and as- 
sistant Don Beasley, Watts joined 
a team blessed with plenty of 
shooters. Faced with this situa- 
tion, Watts decided to channel 
his excellent talents in a less 
publicized but equally important 
direction to become one of the 
•outstanding playmakers-passers 
in the Gulf States Conference. 

Doug, a two-year starter, now 
has a total of 37 assists this sea- 
son, including eight against Loui- 
siana Tech, a cruical GSC game 
that Northwestern won, 86-76. 

In addition Watts engineers the 
Demon offense that has develop- 
ed into a smooth working unit 
producing 85 points a game. 

His teammates demonstrated 
their confidence in Watts by 
electing him as their team co- 
captain this year and last year 
as a sophomore. 

Although the names of James 
Wyatt and Pete Gray grab most 
of the headlines when it comes 
to Demon basketball, Watts' con- 
tributions, while they often do 
not appear in the box scores, are 
nonetheless vital in Northwest- 
ern's winning streak. 

Johnny Emmons 

Emmons Hired 
As Back Coach 

Johnnie Emmons, head coach 
at Lake Charles High for the past 
two years, has been appointed 
offensive backfield coach at 
Northwestern, according to head 
coach Glenn Gossett. 

Emmons, 40, replaces C. H. 
(Pug) Gabrel, who recently re- 
signed as offensive backfield 
coach to accept a similar position 
at Oklahoma State University. 
Gabrel coached here for two 
years and built a record breaking 
offense in 1968. 

No stranger to NSC, Emmons 
was an all-Gulf States Conference 
quarterback with the Demons in 

Emmons started his 14 year 
coaching career at Ferriday High 
and in 1956 moved to Bernice 
where he guided the team to the 
district 1-B title in his third 
year. He was head coach at 
Homer High from 1961-63 and 
went to Lake Charles as an 
assistant in 1964. 

Emmons assumed the head 
coaching responsibilities at Lake 
Charles in 1967 and produced 
one of the state's most powerful 
Double-A teams in history. 

"It's an honor for me to be 
back at Northwestern," Emmons 
said. "I appreciate the confi- 
dence Coach Gossett and the rest 
of the staff have shown in me by 
giving me the opportunity to 
coach on the college level." he

NSCs Gary Boucher The Qne-Way Street! (?) 

Has No Spare Time! 

By Bessie Brock 

Ask Gary Boucher what he 
does in his spare time, and you 
had better have plenty of paper 
and ink and a couples of hours 
to spare or you won't get all his 
hobbies down. 

To begin with, he stunt flies 
airplanes, he scuba dives, builds 
and designs submarines and ro- 
bots, shoots pool, practices hyp- 
nosis, and still has time for 
school and girls. And Gary is 
only a freshman. 

An electronics major from 
Springhill, his greatest interest 
is aerobatics or stunt flying. He 
completed flight training at Mag- 
nolia, Ark., and has been flying 
for more than a year. 

Gary owns a red and white 
Citabira 150 which he occasional- 
ly flies over the campus. He 
would like to fly it to the Ba- 
hamas this summer. He said, 
"You can put this down too. If 
I go I want to take someone 
with me." 

Besides flying, Gary likes to 
build things. He is presently 
working on a robot which is 
green with scales and moves on 
wheels. He plans to scare people 
with it. 

He is also building a one-man 
submarine and he and a friend 
are taking it to Florida to test 
this summer. Later he would like 
to build a raft and float down 
the Mississippi. 

Gary was a DJ for KBSF, a 
thousand watt radio station in 
Springhill, for over two years. 

His other interests include 
scuba diving, playing pool and 
chess, riding horses, cars, experi- 
lecting old Playboy magazines.

By Jim Freeman 

As this reporter worked into 
the almost empty coliseum, about 
30 couples sat patiently waiting, 
and staring at an empty stage 
for the "One Way Street"?! 

(Percy Sledge, originally sche- 
duled to appear at Northwestern, 
cancelled his engagement, giving 
the excuse that he was in Georgia 
recuperating from some vague 
illness. But, according to Stanley 
Tiner, Tech editor, a member of 
the La. Tech Union Board reveal- 
ed that Sledge is frequently 
stricken with this illness — in 
other words, he appears when- 
ever he feels like it.) 

At a time when normally one 
couldn't even find a seat during a 
typical NSC concert, it would be 
an understatement to say that 
one had his choice. 

Then promptly at 7:15, two 
young men came onto the stage 
with one stand and one drum, 
only to disappear and then return 
with more equipment and the 
eventual occupation of an empty 

Snickers of "You can tell they 
just arrived," and "I ain't be- 
lievin this," floated in the air. 

When 8 p.m. finally came, the 
stage was completely setup, ex- 
cept for the entertainers. 

At 8:05 the stage crew turned

A schedule of when these com-

on the stage, and one said, "Test

Both then proceeded to tune 
their instruments and their 

Promptly at 8:15, the "One 
Way Street" (?!) ran out to 
their instruments, microphones, 
and speakers. 

It was immediately evident that 
this group possessed an abun- 
dance of harmony (and sales- 
manship, too). 

The group's new song, "If 
You're Looking For A Fool, Here 

I Am" was plugged many times 
during the performance. It de- 
fies immagination how they sold 
50.000 copies since September. 

Leon Miller, who does most of 
the group's writing and arrang- 
ing, said that the song border- 
lined between soul and country 
and western. 

Dewey Miller's immitation of 
Johnny Cash brought immediate 
audience applause, cheers, and 
whistles, to the only outstanding 
aspect of the entire show. 

As the band gave their saluta- 
tions, sighs of, "It was better 
than nothing," seemed to be the 

Simplicity Presents Program. 

How to plan, purchase, con- 
struct and accessorize a wardrobe 
is the basis for the Spring 1969 
In-Service Program presented by 
the Simplicity Pattern Company. 

This presentation entitled 
"Fashion Artistry" has been pre- 
pared in order to help you apply 
the principles of art and good 
taste when accessorizing for a 
total fashion look. It will be con- 
ducted by Special Field Repre- 
sentative, Miss Helen Wright. 
The presentation will be given 
on February 12 at 6 p.m. in the 
Home Economics Building, by the 
NSC Euthenics Club. 

Dressing for and coordinating 
a costumed or fashion look for 
your age, personality, occasion, 
season and area in which you 
live will be demonstrated by Miss 
Wright. Information on teaching 

consumer economics when spend- 
ing the clothing dollar for fabrics, 
accessories and care of wardrobe 
will be discussed. 

Also included in the presenta- 
tion will be the latest informa- 
tion on fashion trends, fabric 
news and construction techniques. 
A coordinated wardrobe of eight 
garments in new spring fabrics 
and fashions planned to include 
up-to-the minute counture dress- 
making techniques is also featur- 
ed in the presentation. 

Miss Wright, who is a former 
teacher and has presented the

High School Debators 
Converge On Campus 

High schools throughout the 
state will receive invitations 
this week to the 32nd annual 
Northwestern State College 
Forensic Tournament, scheduled 
for Feb. 14-15. 

Ray Schexnider, Northwestern 
debate coach and tournament 
director, said more than 40 high 
schools and some 200 partici- 
pants are expected to compete in 
the event. 

Competition will be held in 
debate, story-telling, poetry in- 
terpretation, television newscast- 
ing, extemporaneous speaking 
and dramatic interpretation. 

ournament competition will be 
in four divisions — senior men, 
senior women, junior men and 
junior women. 

Top awards for the tournament 
will be two sweepstakes trophies. 
One will be awarded to the 
school accumulating the greatest 
number of points in all events 
in the Senior Division and the 
other to the top school in the 
Junior Division. 

In debate competition, trophies 
will be awarded the schools win- 
ning first and second in each 
of the four divisions. Schools 
with the greatest number of 
points in each division in in- 
dividual events will receive 

Each high school may enter a 
maximum of four teams in de- 
bate competition with not more 
than two teams in any single 
division. Each high school may 
also enter one speaker in each in- 
dividual event in all four di- 

Change in Staff 

To the students of Northwest- 
ern, it seems as if the staff of the 
Current Sauce changes at least 
once a year, if not every semes- 

Why, one asks, do people who 
apply for these positions quit 
after one or two semesters? 

The answer does not lie as one 
student phrased it, "Well, no 
wonder they have such a large 
turn-over. Look how bad the 
paper is." 

Perhaps this is the opinion of 
a large number of students. We 
hope not. Actually, old staff mem- 
bers never die, they just change 
courses or graduate. In any case, 
let us realize that a unified staff 
makes a complete paper, a good 

Incidents of the past — conflicts 
with the Student Government As- 
sociation in particular — should 
not be made into disasters. 

However, let it be understood 
that the Current Sauce is the 
press of the student body, and 
that as a press it will act as a 
disseminator of campus life. 

We, the 1969 staff of the Cur- 
rent Sauce, pledge a STUDENT 
newspaper. We welcome any and 
all constructive criticism . . . 
and compliments, too! 

Campus Scouts 
Hold Meeting 

The first meeting of the Camp- 
us Girl Scouts this semester will 
be held Monday, Feb. 10, in 
Room 316 of the Student Union 
building. It will begin at 6:45 
that evening. 

The sponsor, Mrs. Christensen 
of the Education Dept., said that 
discussion would be of spring 
activities such as cookie sales, a 
Possible camping trip, and train- 
ing programs. 

The cookies will be sold in the 
girls' dorms and at various times 
in the lobby of the Student 
L'nion between Feb. 15 and 
■March 1. Any member may be 
contacted for cookies at other 

. All interested persons are in- 
v 'ted to attend the Monday night 


A unique feature of the tour- 
nament will be the television 
newscasting division, in which 
the college's audio-visual center 
will provide a two-camera setup 
which will be used to judge con- 
testants on general television ap- 
pearance, ability to read script 
and face the "on the air" camera, 
comprehension of single and his 
effectiveness of delivery. 


The winners of this year's 
Mr. and Miss NSC election 
were inadvertently omitted 
from the Christmas edition of 
the Current Sauce. Janice 
Lowe, a senior education 
major from Haynesville, was 
selected Miss NSC, and Henry 
Burns, of Shongaloo, major- 
ing upper elementary educa- 
tion, won the Mr. NSC title.

Does it really work? 

If you've ever resorted to NoDoz' at 4 a.m. 
the night before an exam, you've probably 
been disappointed. 

NoDoz, after all, is no substitute for 
sleep. Neither is anything else we can 
think of. 

What NoDoz is is a very strong stim- 
ulant. In fact, NoDoz has the strongest 
stimulantyou can buy withouta prescrip- 


What's so strong about that? 

If we may cite The Pharmacological 
Basis of Therapeutics: Caffeine is a 
powerful central nervous stimulant. Caf- 
feine excites all portions of the central 
nervous system. Caffeine stimulates all 
portions of the cortex, but its main action 
is on the psychic and sensory functions. 
It produces a more rapid and clearer flow 
of thought and allays drowsiness and 
fatigue. After taking caffeine, one is ca- 
pable of more sustained intellectual ef- 
fort and a more perfect association of 
ideas. There is also a keener apprecia- 
tion of sensory stimuli. 

Very interesting. But why take 

NoDoz when you can get caffeine in a 
cup of coffee? 

Very simple. You take NoDoz all at 
once instead of sipping coffee for 10 min- 
utes. And if you take two NoDoz tablets, 
the recommended dosage, you get twice 
the caffeine in a cup of coffee. 

Two tablets— isn't that likely to be 
habit forming? Definitely not. NoDoz is 
completely non-habit forming. 

Which means it's safe to take 
whether you're cramming at night. Or 
about to walk into an 8 o'clock class. Or 
driving somewhere (even though you're 
rested) and the monotony of the road 
makes you drowsy. 

One last thing you should know 
about NoDoz. It now comes in two forms. 
Those familiar white pills you take with 
water. And a chewable tablet called 
NoDoz Action Aids*. It tastes like a choc- 
olate mint, but it does everything regular 
NoDoz does. 

And if you've managed 
to stay awake this 
long, you know 
that's quite a lot. |

Microbiology Department 
Researches Immunology 

A Northwestern State College 
research team in the department 
of microbiology is conducting in- 
vestigations into the basic mech- 
anisms active in immunity to di- 

Directing the research is Dr. 
Rene J. Bienvenu, Dean of the 
School of Science and Techno- 
logy at the college. 

Research funds were made 
available to Northwestern for the 
study by the National Institutes 
of Health. Bienvenu has received 
grants from the institutes for the 
past 10 years. 

The work at Northwestern is 
directed toward obtaining a bet- 
ter understanding of the chemi- 
cal reactions which occur be- 
tween the blood proteins of ami- 
mals and foreign materials, such 
as bacteria which frequently gain 
entrance into the body. 

Bienvenu pointed out the "the 
emphasis now being placed on 
orgam transplants, and the pro- 
blemsinvolved i n such proced- 
ures, necessitates a concerted ef- 
fort toward research involving 
the reaction of the human body 
to foreign tissues." 

Members of the research team 
said the work they are now doing 
in the area of immunity to di- 
sease is given additional import- 
ainceby the possible use of vacci- 
nation in the control of certain 

types of cancer. 

The Northwestern scientists 
have isolated and identified the 
chemical constituents from the 
bacteria which react with blood 
serum proteins. The reactive 
sites have been found to exist in 
the cell wall of the bacteria and 
to react with gamma globulin in 
the blood. It is this component 
of blood which is associated with 
most reactions of the immune 

Working with Bienvenu on the 
project are three graduate stu- 
dents, Mrs. Grace Creel, Shreve- 
port; Patricia Smith, Ruston; 
Geine Koury, Leesville; and a re- 
search technician, Mrs. Linda 
Fair of Shreveport. 

Bienvenu said, "If we are to 
understand why the body rejects 
other tissues, such as is the case 
in heart transplants, and if we 
are to overcome these problems, 
it is imperative that we know the 
exact chemical reactions which 
occur between the animal and 
the foreign tissues being trans- 
planted into the animal." 

He adSed. "Most researchers 
are of the opinion that the an- 
swer to these problems will be 
reached through the accumula- 
tive efforts of numerous investi- 
gators. It is the hope of the 
group here at Northwestern that 
we might contribute to the solu- 

tion of some of these problems.'' 
Bienvenu and other Northwest- 
ern scientists gained national 
recognition a few years ago when 
they discovered a relationship 
between hormones and resistance 
to infection by certain bacteria.

Now that we've finally gotten 
the hang of snaking- our way 
down Natchitoches' system of 
numerous one-way streets, we've 
learned that the civic planners 
are going to pull "the old switch" 

Feb. 10, the one-way- 
signs are going to be pulled 
down, and all streets that were 
formerly two-way will once again 
be reverted back to the opposing 
traffic method GOOD LUCK and 




ALL RIGHT NOW, when was the last time you wrote home? Well, 
•we suggest this might he a good time to get off a letter — particu- 
larly with the holidays coming up. Granted it's more hlessed to 
give than to receive... hut it never hurts to drop a few hints. And 
here are some fashion items that might make excellent entries on 
your Christmas list: 

SPORTCOATS SURGE to the fashion fore, 
ground with big, bold plaids — giant Glens, win- 
dowpanes, pattern-on^attern overplaids — the 
bolder the better. Side vents are deep ... up to 
14 inches . . . and waist suppression furthers the 
trend toward shape. While on sportcoats, we 
should mention the Billiard Cloth Blazer. Tai- 
lored in bulky, hefty baize in single and double- 
breasted models, these new blazers have the 
soft, smooth look of a billiard table-top — with 
colors to match. In addition to the traditional 
navy, brighter blazers will be seen in real bil- 
liard green and camel, tan and gold shades. 
Try this blazer with patterned slacks — so pop- 
ular right now — and you should chalk up lots 
of points. 

CUIR SAUVAGE — the rage of the Continent last season — liaa 
come into its own in America this Fall. The literal translation 
.from French is "wild leather" and you can recognize it by the 
antiqued finish which gives an interesting — and totally new — < 
look. Styles abound — a Western cowboy version made famous by 
Steve McQueen, aviator/ bomber jackets with zippers going in 
every direction, three-quarter-length belted models with deep cen- 
ter vents, notched collars, epaulets and detachable pile linings. 
Prices vary greatly ... from about $75 to over $400... so you can 
really go wild when purchasing your new "wild leather." 

THE COONSKIN COMEBACK is big news for college men ... it 
■we don't mean those ratty refugees from second-hand shops. Brand 
new furs with healthy sheen and high styling, the look we like is 
maxi-length with belted back and sprawling notched collar. Many 
come with brilliant colored linings for added dash. And if raccoon 
doesn't grab you, try ... 

NORWEGIAN HAIR SEAL in a short double- 
breasted, side-vented coat... again with notched 
collar and belted back. Or a seal parka — mighty 
handsome with leather piping and stand-up 
collar. Then there's lynx, muskrat, kangaroo, 
Russian wolf (great for a greatcoat) and of 
course mink . . . for them as has ! But should you 
want to try fur fashions without too large an 
initial outlay, take a look at the models avail- 
able in acrylic pile. These coats capture the 
look, the warmth, the luxurious trappings of 
fur at a fraction of thy cost . . . and require little 

THE EASY SUIT brings a new concept to college wardrobes, with 
gangs of latitude for the imaginative dresser. In this case "easy" 
means "easy to interchange," for this is a suit that can be just as 
easily worn with turtleneck as with shirt and tie. The jackets range 
from variations on the Regency theme to double-breasted pea-coats 
...some are fly-front, some collarless. Trousers are generally 
slightly flared... and the over-all look will stamp the wearer with 
distinct individuality — no bad thing in this era of fashion revo- 
lution. . 

LAST MINUTE ouuGESTIONS for that Christmas list: matching 
mufflers, gloves and sweaters in bright wools, either solid color or 
border-striped... bodyline sportshirts... toiletries (there's such a 
raft of new products and scents, we suggest you check them out 
first... then indicate specific preferences). And for Pete's sake, 
don't forget to tell Aunt Martha neckties are getting wider this 
year I .. - '

Arrests Mount Cn 
Marijuana Charges 

Friday, February 14, 1969 

By David Precht 

Concerted effort by Campus, 
city, and parish police have led 
to the arrests of at least 17 NSC 
students on charges ranging from 
illegal use and possession of mari- 
juana to illegal sale of hallu- 
cenogenic drugs. 

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff 
Sam James released the names 
of four of those charged. 

They are Sidney P. Messinger, 
freshman from Shreveport; Jack 
S. Taylor, freshman from Rich- 
ardson, Tex.; Douglas P. Denny, 
sophomore, and Robert F. Witt, 
sophomore, both from Leesville. 

The names of the other stu- 
dents reportedly arrested were 
withheld pending further investi- 
gation. It was learned, however, 
that those charged had been sus- 
pended from school. 

According to Dean of Students 
Dudley Fulton, "Further arrests 
are expected as the investiga- 
tions continue." Campus Security 
Chief James K. Lee agreed with 
Fulton, but added that "we think 
we've gotten at the root of the 

The initial arrests were made 
when a plastic bucket containing 
packages of marijuana were 
found by a group of fisherman 
along the Cane River. 

According to one report, Taylor 
bought the bucket full of mari- 
juana from someone at Stephen 
F. Austin College in Texas. After 
bringing it back to Natchitoches, 
he divided it into packages and 
hid it along the Cane. 

When the cache was found, it 
was turned over to the authori- 
ties, who had it analyzed and 
then returned it to its hiding 

Campus Security aided other 
local officers in watching for the 
hidden drugs. When Denny, Witt, 
and Taylor returned for the mari- 
juana 1 , they were picked up. 

Messinger was reportedly ap- 
prehended later in his dormitory 
room and found to have mari- 
juana in his possession. Most of 
the subsequent arrests have been 

made of students living in apart- 
ments off campus, according to 

Despite the suddenness of the 
breaking out into the open of 
the drug situation at Northwest- 
ern, local authorities had long 
been aware of presence of the 
sale and use of "pot" on campus. 

Chief Lee remarked, "I was 
fearful that when this situation 
did break out, that it would be 
as extensive as it is. But this is 
not to say that we have not 
known about it." 

Qualifying his statement, Lee 
said, "These arrests didn't just 
happen overnight. We met a lot 
of roadblocks and detours, but 
we've had a lot of good help from 
fine students, too." 

Lieutenant Maggio with the 
Natchitoches City Police Depart- 
ment added, "Civilians have 
hindered to some extent in our 
investigation by trying to carry 
on their own investigations, but 
the majority have been helpful." 

He advised students with per- 
tinent information to go directly 
to the right authorities. "All 
statements," Maggio said, "are 
strictly confidential." 

In spite of all the recent ar- 
rests related t o matrijuana 
charges, some city and campus 
officials praised the general stu- 
dent body of Northwestern. 

City Police Chief Durr stated, 
"It is as much or more our duty

to protect the innocent as it is 
to convict the guilty, and the 
vast majority of the students are 
here for an education."

The dining halls on campus 
took a turn from the ordinary on 
Feb. 6. The managers from the

dining hall, said that approxi- 
mately 2200 students passed 
through both halls. He said there 
were 1700 assigned to Iberville

GET YOUR COOKIES from the Girl Scouts, say these three 
Campus Scouts as the local group begins its annual cookie 
sales Feb. 15 through Mar. 1. Displaying their wares to Maye 
Foster, a customer, are Paula Ghent, a scout for 10 years, 
and June Landry, patrol leader. The girls will be selling 
cookies in girls' dorms and the student union. 

CHOSEN TO REIGN as queen of the annual Student Union 
Winter Ball is Karen Karisny, third from the bottom. Karen 
is from Alexandria and will be presented with her court 
during the festivities. Those on the court pictured from top 
to bottom are: Patsy Slifer, Oberlin; Norma Oliver, Shreve-

andria; Donna Lindsey, Houston, Tex.; and Sherrie Brown, 
Shreveport. Not pictured is Kathy Brokaw from Shreveport. 

Karen Karisny Ch«sen 
As Winter Ball Queen 

Northwtstern's second annual 
Student Union Winter Ball will 
be held Friday, Feb. 21 from 
8-12 p.m. Music will be provided 
by "Bert Miller and the Swing 
Kings", popular in the New 
Iberia and Lake Charles area. 

The theme for the occasion 
will be "Carnival", to go along 
with the Mardi Gras spirit. The 
purpose of the all-college formal, 
according to Robert Wilson, Stu- 
dent Union Director, is "so that 
all students will have the oppor- 
tunity to attend at least one 
formal per year." 

Karen Karisny, a senior are 
education major from AllexaiN 
dria, has been chosen to reign as 
queen of the event. 

The girls chosen to be on the 
court include: Kathy Brokaw, 
freshman business major from 
Shreveport; Sherrie Brown, sen- 
ior education major from Shreve- 
port: Winnie Darphin, sopho- 
more business education major 

from Baton Rouge; Donna Marie 
Lindsey, junior interior design 
major from Houston, Tex.; Nor- 
ma Oliver, sophomore speech and 
hearing therapy major from 
Shreveport; and Patsy Slifer, 
senior psychology major from 

The queen and her court were 
selected by the Student Union 
committees on the basis of beau- 
ty, service, and leadership. 

The formal, sponsored by the 
Student Union and financed by 
the S.G.A., was a big success 
last year and is viewed very op- 
timistically this year. 

Students will be admitted upon 
receipt of one student I.D. card 
per couple. Dress for the occa- 
sion will be evening gowns for 
the girls and dark suits for the 

Preparations have started for 
the event and everyone is invited 
to attend. It should be one of the 
highlights of the Spring semester. 

Debate Tourney Begins Today, Ends Tomorrow 

Thirty-five high schools will be 
competing for top honors today 
and tomorrow in the 34th annual 
Demon Forensic Tournament on 

The more than 200 high school 
debators will be debating in four 
different divisions which include 
senior men, senior women, junior 
men and junior women. 

Some will also be entered in 
individual events such as story- 
telling, extemporaneous speaking, 
dramatic interpretation, poetry 
interpretation, and a new fea- 
ture — television newscasting. 

Handling the arrangements for 
the debate divisions will be Ray- 

mond Rogers, a senior speech 
education major from Shreve- 
port, and a former debater for 

Jerry Johnson of Glenmora will 
have charge of the individual 
events, while Glenda Maddox will 
take care of registration and com- 
putation of results. 

Other student workers are 
Randy Edmunds, who will handle 
room arrangements and Linda 
Newman, who will be directing 
the judging. 

Judges for the debate rounds 
and individual events will be 
high school coaches and members 
of the NSC debate squad. • 

The young debators will be 
arguing the topic, "Resolved: 
That the United States should 
establish a system of compulsory 
service for all citizens." 

Noting this timely topic, De- 
bate Coach Ray Schexnider in- 
vites interested students to ob- 
serve some of the debates to be 
held on campus. 

Summing up his expectations 
of the tournament, Schexnider 
said, "I think this is going to be 
a good tournament with extreme- 
ly keen competition this year." 

"The stronger teams," he add- 
ed, "could turn out to be Byrd 
of Shreveport, or Captain Shreve, 
a young school."

A Good Service 

Last fall,, the Student Government Association de- 
vised the "Book Exchange" service which was carried out by 
members of the Circle K club. This is a good service. 

Under the system, students would give the Exchange 
worker the book he wished to sell, along with the price he 
wanted for it. Each book was marked up 25 cents, which was 
divided between the SGA and Circle K. 

In turn, when a student wished to purchase a beak the 
following semester, he payed only the price requested by tM 
former owner of the book plus the 25 cents. 

With the ehmination of the need for the "middle man" 
to show a substantial profit, both parties to the exchange 

Judging from the success of the first semester under 
the new system, it seems that we finally have a long-awaited 
competitor for the Bookstore. 

"Approximately 700 books were taken in by Circle K, and 
all editions still in use were re-sold. This is a promising 
beginning for this new system of handling books. • 

As to whether or not this will bring about more reason- 
able prices in both purchasing and sales of textbooks o$ the 
part of the Bookstore, one can only speculate. 

But the fact remains that if the SGA and Circle K main- 
tain this service to the student, he will no longer have to 
rely solely on the Bookstore, but will have a more profitable 
market for his old books. 

Thank vou, SGA and Circle K, for bringing the system 
of competition to this neglected area of campus life! 

Odds and Ends 

By Jim Freeman 

Communications is perhaps one 
of the most misunderstood as- 
pects of modern society. It's a 
little like the weather.everyome 
complains about it, but only a 
few people really try to do some- 
thing about the problem. 

One of those people is Walter 
P. Ledet, Registrar of North- 

In this reporter's column an 
effort will be made to dissemi- 
nate all news relating to the 
registrar's office. 

Starting with summer registra- 
tion, registration helpers will be 
admitted to the coliseum arena 
by lists rather thain by cards as 
has been done in the past. 

These lists will have to be 
furnished to the Registrar's office 
several days before the first day 
of registration. •» 

Registration helpers will be al- 
lowed to register during the first 
hour.but on a priority basis. That 
priority will be: auditor, deans, 
Blue Key and Circle K, a limited 
number of Purple Jackets, pho- 
tographer, registrar, and depart- 
ments in alphabetical order, this 
order to be reversed each semes- 
ter.The number of helpers an 
each list will have to be approved 
by the Registrar. 

Dining hall workers, graduat- 
ing seniors and special groups 
will also be admitted at their 
designated times by lists rather 
than by cards. 

The above mentioned students 
will have to be at the coliseum 
at their designated time to re- 
gister or they will forfeit this 
privilege and will have to wait 
for their regular alphabetical 

The policy of having the stu- 
dent's trial schedule punched to 
indicate the approval to receive 
class cards will be followed again 
next registration. The type punch 
and the place on the trial card 
will be announced at registration. 
A student should not be issued 
cards without a punched trial 
schedule card. 

Ledet said that following this 
procedure would help to speed 
up the registration process. 

"Odds and Ends" will be rov- 
ing around various places on 
campus and off. Anyone having 
information that might be of in- 
terest, please contact this re- 

Looking at Books 

College students who want to 
read a book just for kicks should 
try Skyblue the Badass by Dallas 

• Skyblue, is the hero wha shares 
every experience of nature and 
mankind in the novel, but can- 
not seem to find his place in the 
scheme of things. He "attends col- 
lege, discovers literature, and be- 
comes a teacher only to meet 
complete failure. 

The novel is written from Sky- 
blue's point of view and there- 
fore the experiences are extreme. 

Dallas Wiebe has reversed the 
usual story form in this novel. 
The story lies beneath the surface 
of a world of spectacular wit and 

Skyblue the Badass is Dallas 
Wiebe's first novel. He has had 
other works such as poems, short 
stories, and articles published

Will The Demons Roll Over And Die? 

By Lynn Rollins 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

QUESTION — What will the 
1968-69 basketball team do after 
seeing their chance for a Gulf 
States Conference tilt fall in a 
rain of free throws converted 
by La. Tech last Tuesday? 

ANSWER — ( hopefully ) — Pick 
up the pieces and win the re- 
maining five games to finish the 
season with a fine 18-8 record. 

It won't be easy. But .... 
Northwestern is still in the driv- 
ers seat for a berth in a post- 
season playoff. The probable 
winner of the GSC, Southwestern, 
is still on probation and can- 
not participate in any NAIA or 
NCAA tournaments after the 
season. The Demons are 13-8 over- 
all and 7-2 in league action. 

The first step on the road to 
finishing with a flourish will have 
to be taken tomorrow night 
against non-concerence La. Col- 
lege. The Wildcats bowed to the 
Demons earlier on LC's floor by 
a count of 72-67. 

The Cats are led by 6-5 sharp- 

1969 NSC Baseball 
Schedule Released 

Practice began last week for 
the 1969 adition of the NSC De- 
mon's daseball team. 

New head coach Herbie Smith 
says that he is "very enthusias- 
tic about this year's prospects." 

With such returning lettermen 
as pitchers Don Shields and Terry 
Alario, shortstop Chuch Soileaux, 
outfielders David Smith, Monroe 
Thompson, and Butch Flores, 
and catcher James Gibson, the 
team looks solid at this stage. 

Coach Smith urges everyone 
to go out and support the team. 
Most home games will be started 
at 1:15 p.m. The tentative sche- 
dule is as follows: 

March 15 So. State College— Magnolia 

March 17 E. Tex. Baptist College— Here 

March 19 USL— Here 

March 22 La. Tech — Ruston 

March 24 SLC— Here 

March 29 Lamar Tech — Here 

March 31 Nicholls State — Thibodaux, 

April 3 E. Tex. Baptist — Marshall 

April 8McNeese State College — Here 

April 12 Northeast State — Monroe, 

April 14 Lamar Tech — Beaumont 

April 19 Louisiana Tech — Here 

April 21 SLC — Hammond 

April 28 Nicholls State — Here 

May 3 McNeese State — Lake Charles 

May 5 Northeast State — Here 

Wyatt Closing 
In On Two 
Career Records 

It seems to be only a matter 
of time before senior James 
Wyatt breaks the present career 
rebounding record in the Gulf 
States Conference and sets a new 
standard for the school scoring 

With five games remaining in 
the regular season, Wyatt has 
1413 rebounds and needs to aver- 
age only 12.6 a game to break 
Southeastern's C. A. Core's record 
of 1475. Wyatt is currently aver- 
aging 17 grabs a game for the 

Wyatt is also destined to be 
Northwestern's most prolific scor- 
er in history as he closes on 
Dick Brown's total of 1801. This 
season James is scoring at an 
18.9 clip and needs 65 points for 
the new record. 

As a four year starter, Wyatt 

shooting forward David Mitchell 
and 6-8 pivot-man Billy Jones. 
The twosome carries most of 
the scoring punch with their 
averages hovering around the 20 
mark. Mitchell recently became 
LC's most prolific scorer in 

Rugged Alan Williams, little 
Gary LaCaze, and Frankie Sch- 
neider will probably round out 
the starting five for coach Billy 

The Cats have won two straight, 
including a one-point win over 
La. Tech last week. 

Brewing Bad Medicine 

The Demons resume league 
play next Tuesday against the 
Northeast Indians and all indi- 

cations point to another hair rais- 
er. Northeast, coming on strong 
in the past few weeks, will be 
brewing bad medicine for the 
Demons on their home court. 

Northeast relies heavily on a 
balanced attack with George 
Stockton and Henry Steele lead- 
ing the parade with their 19 and 
14 point averages. Steele is hit 
ing 55 per cent from the field 
with his teammate not far be- 
hind at 50 per cent. This duo 
also dominate the GSC statistics 
with the number two and four 
spots in rebounding. 

Also attributing to good team 
play is Larry Saulters — he leads 
the league in assists with a fine 
6.7 average. 

Northwestern won the first

proved — they lost to USL by 
only five points in an overtime

Bright Spots 

There were bright spots in the 
shocking loss to Tech. Johnny 
Janese played perhaps his finest 
game as a Demon when he hit 
10-13 from the field and scored 
20 points. 

Hustling Pete Gray hit over 
50 per cent from the field and 
finished with 15. 

The junior varsity returned to 
winning ways after a loss to the 
McNeese JV's with a solid 105- 
76 win over the Tech Puppies. 
In hiking their record to 14-4-1, 

the Imps put four men in double

Strong Bench. Is A Key To Demon Success 

By Bobby Hyams 
Sports Correspondent 

Northwestern State College is 
presently sporting a 13-8 record 
overall, and is in hot pursuit 
with Southwestern for the Con- 
ference Crown which has eluded 
Demon basketball teams since 

While much of the Demon's 
success has been attributed to 
the play of James Wyatt, Charles 
Bloodworth and Pete Gray, simple 
fact is, had it not been excellent 
depth on the Demon bench this 
year, Northwestern would be 
holding down an also-ran posi- 
tion in the Gulf States Confer- 
ence race. 

These excellent off-the-bench 
performances have been turned 
in by Odis Faust, Jerry Masters 
and Carlton Walding. 

This trio has combined for an 
average of 14.3 points, and 7.5 

rebounds per outing while con- 
tributing a season total of 32 
assists to the Demon cause. In 
addition the combined field goal 
percentage of these clutch per- 
formers is 46 per cent — three per- 
centage points ahead of North- 
western's team average of. 43.0 
per cent. 

Faust, a two-year letterman is 
averaging 6.2 points, while haul- 
ing down an impressive four ca- 
rooms a game in his reserve role. 

Odis in fact was a starter in his 
junior season hitting 11 points a 
contest and shooting 49 per cent 
from the field. However, this year 
the 6-4 senior had to relinquish 
his first team spot to Charles 

When Faust enters the game — 
usually to replace Bloodworth 
who has fouled out eight times 
this season — the Demons employ 
a run-shoot, fast-break offense 

which depends heavily on Faust's 
ability to shoot from the corners. 
Apparently he fits his role to a 
tee as attested in last Friday's 
game against McNeese. Odis sup- 
plied nine points after coming 
off the bench, to help Northwest- 
ern squeak by the tough Cowboys 

This was the second excellent 
performance turned in by Faust 
against the 'Pokes; the first being 
a home encounter in which 
Northwestern racked up its initial 
Conference win by an 85-66 mar- 
gin. The Many product, perhaps 
playing his finest game of the 
season, hit three of four field 
attempts and picked off nine re- 
bounds in the second half to turn 
a hard-fought contest into a run- 

Jerry Masters, who usually 
subs for senior Pete Gray, is cur- 
rently leading the Demon's in 
field goal percentage with an

Jerry, in the process of earn- 
ing his second letter as a sub- 
stitute, is called by coach Tynes 
Hildebrand a "student of the 
game who gives 100 percent 
everytime out. Jerry has a cool 
head and never lets us down in 
the clutch." 

With one year of eligibility 
left, Masters seems destined to 
inherit Gray's center-post posi- 
tion, a starting slot he might 
have earned sooner had it not 
been occupied by an All-Con- 
ference player. 

Bolstering the guard position 
for the Purple and White is the 
6-2 Freshman from Alexandria, 
Carlton Walding. 

Carlton, one of the most sought 
after athletes in Louisiana bas- 
ketball history, led the Bolton 
Bears to the state AAA finals 
in his senior year, while earning 
All-State honors in the process. 
First signing with Texas A&M, 
Walding then transferred to 

Carlton was thought to have an 
excellent chance of winning a 
starting position, but inconsistent 
play at the first of the season — 
due to a lack of experience — was 
responsible for his being demoted 
to the junior varsity. 

After burning up freshman 
games with consistent high scor- 
ing performances, Carlton found 
himself playing varsity ball again 
in a reserve role. The Bolton Ace 
is presently averaging 4.4 points 
per tilt and has passed out a 
total of 16 assists. 

Walding's vast improvement 
has enabled Coach Tynes Hilde- 
brand to substitute freely at the 
guard position during the course 
of a game in order to keep his 
front court fresh. 

The "dynamic trio" of Walding. 
Faust, and Masters will definite- 
ly make their presence felt down 
the home stretch of the season.

Records Broken 
By Lifters In 
Houston Meet 

by David Miller 
Sports Correspondent 

The Northwestern State College 
Weightlifting Team participated 
in the Gulf AAU meet in Hous- 
ton, Texas, Saturday February 8. 
The team is not actually spon- 
sored by the college but has been 
representing NSC for quite some 

The team is made up of several 
individuals who have been de- 
voting their own time and money 
for the purpose of building a 
standard weightlifting team at 
NSC. They receive no financial 
help from the college but still 
use the college name when com- 
peting in a meet. 

Three of the lifters made the 
trip to Houston last week. Carl 
Pearson won a fourth place posi- 
tion while breaking a record in 
his 181 pound class. Carl pressed 
275 pounds for a new record and 
his total for three lifts was 790 

Richard Simon of Crowley 
broke two records in his 165 
pound class. Richard snatched 
250 pounds and got 320 in the 
clean and jerk. His total was 820 

Steve Miller of Shreveport in 
the 198 class also wrecked two 
of the meet records. Steve 
pressed an amazing 330 pounds 
and got 355 in the clean and jerk. 
His total was 925. 

The team is scheduled to at- 
tend the Junior Southern AAU 
Meet in New Orleans on March 1. 
Miller will not be entered in that 
meet. He won the meet last year 
and achieved the title of Out- 
standing Lifter. He will be going 
with the team as a coach, helping 
them out when he can. Miller ex- 
pressed that the boys from NSC 
should have no problem walking 
away with most of the top honors. 

On March 29, the Regional IV 
meet will also be held in New 
Orleans — a meet they have begun 
training for. Also, Miller has 
hopes of attending the Junior 
National Meet in New York later 
in the year. 

Two other members of the 
team are Bill Dean of Shreveport 
and Bob Parker of Lake Arthur.

Audio-Visual Center Airs TV Program 

'Northwestern Presents' 
Will Be Shown Sunday 

"Northwestern Presents" will 
premiere this Sunday, Feb. 16, 
at 1 p.m. on television station 
KALB, channel 5. 

Gene Cagle, director of the 
half-hour program and recently 
appointed faculty member of the 
Audio-Visual Center, said that 
the program is "designed to ac- 
quaint the viewers with the facili- 
ties and activities of the var- 
ious departments of the college." 

Cagle also said that the pro- 
duction of the program will be 
handled by students enrolled in 
Speech 345 and 446. 

"Students will also be the an- 

nounceds and interviewers," the 
director reported. 

Cagle hopes that at least 13 
programs will be aired during 
the semester. 

Two TV Courses 

Presently, there are two cours- 
es, Psychology 101 and Fresh- 
man Orentation, that are ultiiz- 
ing the center's facilities. 

When asked about the differen- 
ces between television and regu- 
lar classroom instruction, Cagle 
said, "All the research that's been 
done says that there is no signi- 
ficant difference.

"But I think there are a lot 
of advantages. For example, tele-

The camera can zoom-in for close-

pass them around. 

"Another advantage is that all 
aspects of visual aids, graphics 
and film, can be used in one pro- 

"However, the biggest advant- 
age is that a student enrolled 
in a survey course has the benefit 
of the department head as his 
instructor. How many depart- 
ment heads do you know are 
able to teach a survey course?" 

The Audio-Visual Center can 
be comparred to a fourteen year- 
old: it was born in 1955 in Cald- 
well Hall, and in the last two 
years it has grown by leaps and 
bounds. Today, it is one of the 
largest and best equipped op- 
erations of its kind in the state. 

The Audio- Visual Center, which 
is directed by Dr. Thomas Hen- 
nigan, has been equipped during 
the past few years at a cost of 
more than $300,000. 

This past year, the center was 
moved to the new Arts and 
Sciences Building, the largest 
classroom building in the state. 

The facilities now occupy 
more than 11,000 square feet of 
floor area. 

The multi-purpose center is 
helping to alleviate many of the 
problems that face most colleges, 
such as increased enrollments, 
and teacher shortages. 

One of the main features of 
the center is the Regional Film 
Library of the State Department 
of Education. Facilities for the 
library include a large work- 
room and film storage area, 
equipment storage, mailing and 
shipping area, supplies and ma- 
terials storage, a preview room 
and staff offices. 

In addition to the library, 
there are six other areas in which 
the center serves Northwestern 
and schools throughout the 
state: an electronics service, 
graphic production, photography, 
television production, and audio 
visual and television courses. 


THE NEW AUDIO-VISUAL center depicted in these three 
photos not only film class lectures, below, but will also 
be responsible for a television show to be aired on Channel 
5 in Alexandria, "Northwestern Presents". Dr. Thomas L. 
Hennigan, director of the center is shown above, while Mr. 
Paul Keyser, engineer, checks a camera (above left).

Dr. Land Loved His Work, 
His Birds, and His People 

J« 1 fWM U„ 1 3 !_• T-. 1 t, 

By Bessie Brock 

Students and friends who were 
fortunate enough to know him 
clearly saw that he was a quiet, 
efficient, self-reliant, very opti- 
mistic person. He possessed self- 
discipline and found ways to 
make a boring duty interesting. 

Dr. Hugh Colman Land died 
Friday, December 23, 1968, at 
his home in Natchitoches. He 
was a victim of Hodgkin's disease, 
a type of lymph cancer, which 
he had for the past two and one 
half years. 

Born in New York City on 
February 10, 1929, Dr. Land 
graduated from Culver Military 
Academy in Indiana in 1946. He 
received a B.S. in zoology from 
Marshall University in West 
Virginia in 1950 graduating mag- 
na cum laude. 

In 1952 Dr. Land received his 
Master of Science degree in 
zoology and wildlife management 
from Ohio State University and

Miss Thigpen will tell her ex- 
perience as a summer missionary 
under the Southern Baptist Stu- 
dent Program, while Miss Wailes 
will review a trip she made to 
Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly in 
North Carolina last summer. 

According to Miss Aline Fuse- 
lier, YWA director of the Louisi- 
ana Baptist Convention, more 
than 1,000 students and college- 
age young women are expected 
to attend this highlight meeting 
of the YWA year. 

The conference theme is "For 
the Living of These Days," and 
the program is designed to offer 
inspiration to young women 

Several Southern Baptist Home 
and Foreign missionaries will ap- 
pear on the program. 

Glonda Fontenot of Golden

in 1960 he received his Ph.D. in 
zoology from the University of 
Oklahoma where he studied under 
Dr. George M. Sutton. 

In the fall of 1962, Dr. Land 
came to teach at Northwestern 
State College from Concord Col- 
lege in Athens, West Virginia. 

Dr. Land was a member of the 
American Ornithologists Union, 
National Audubon Society, Ex- 
plorers Club, Wilson Ornithologi- 
cal Society, Cooper Ornithologi- 
cal Society, Beta Beta Beta, Sig- 
ma Xi, Louisiana Ornithological 
Society (past president and 
editor), Florida Audobon Society, 
and the Brooks Bird Club. 

At the time of his death, he 
was president of the Sigma Xi 
Club and president of the Nat- 
chitoches Audubon Society. He 
was also state coordinator for 
the Fish and Wildlife Service 
Breeding Bird Survey and for 
the Cornell University Nesting 
Card Program, director of the 
Louisiana Ornithological Society, 
and editor of the Natchitoches 
Audubon Society newsletter. 

In 1968 he was selected for 
the Phi Kappa Phi award for 
Faculty Excellence. Dr. Land was 
also a charter member of Holy 
Cross Church and a member of 
the Holy Cross Council. 

Also in 1968, Dr. Land was 
elected to the Explorer's Club 
which is an American Broadcost- 
ing System expedition to the 
Mayan caves of eastern Guate- 
mala. He studied bird life in 
and around the caves there. 

Some of his work on this trip 
will be aired in the late winter 
of 1969 in a television special 
which has been prepared covering 
the work of the expedition. 

Before his death Dr. Land 
finished Birds of Guatemala, a 
760-page manuscript with maps 
and colored identification plates 
most of which he painted himself. 

The book is being sponsored 
by the International Committee 
for Bird Preservation, Pan Ameri- 
can Section, and is currently be- 
ing published by the Livingston 
Press of Philadelphia. 

He had started another book 
on birds of Central America and 
was working on an 80-minute 
motion picture on the ecology 
and conservation of the Louisi- 
ana estuaries (the wide mouth of 
a river in which the tide ebbs 
and flows) for possible use on 
the National Audubon Society 
Wildlife Lecture Series. 










Front and Touline Streets 
The Students' Friend 

Besides writing books and all 
the other things he was doing, 
Dr. Land still found time to make 
films, show them, lecture to socie- 
ties and other professional groups 
in 12 different states, and write 
articles for many professional 
magazines and journals. 

From 1960 to 1968, he had 15 
articles and reviews published 
for such professional magazines 
as The Auk, Florida Naturalist, 
The Condor, Wilson Bulletin, and 
Explorer's Journal. 

Dr. Land was a foremost 
authority in ornithology, his 
major field of interest. All his 
articles and books were on birds. 

He enjoyed his work very 
much. In fact, his Thanksgiving 
holiday was spent in a shrimp 
boat with Eric Bienvenu off the 
coast of Louisiana photographing 
shrimping activities for his film 
on the Louisiana estuaries. 

Teaching was also one of Dr. 
Lands interests. He taught at 
many high schools, colleges and 
universities since 1948 as a teach- 
er, graduate assistant, assistant 
professor, and finally at NSC — 
assistant to full professor. 

Each August since 1960, Dr. 
Land's vacations have included 
from one to six of his students 
on trips to various parts of the 
United States and Canada and 
to Guatemala. 

In 1957, while teaching in 
Oklahoma, Dr. Land married one 
of his physics students. It took 
three colleges, three babies, and 
five years, but Mrs. Margaret 
Land finally received her B.S. in 
mathematics in 1967 from North- 
western and is currently a faculty 

DR. HUGH LAND is shown here doing what he liked to do 
most. Dr. Land traveled in the United States, Canada, and 
Guatamala studying and photographing many different types 
of birds. He had come to be a recognized authority in orni- 

member of the NSC math depart- 

Eric Bienvenu, one of Dr. 
Land's students, described him 
thusly: "He was very intelligent, 
understanding, and full of excit- 
ing plans. He was a brilliant pro- 
fessor of many subjects and a 
great photographer." 

Dr. Earle A. Cross, a profes- 
sor in the biology department 
and one of Dr. Land's friends, 
said, "He was a very unusual 
man. He was one of the few biolo- 
gists I know who still went on 
field trips. I don't know of any- 
thing else to say except, we 
miss him."

Normally, we insist that every man read the instructions on self- 
defense that we put in every package of Hai Karate® After Shave 
and Cologne. But we've got a heart. So on Valentine's Day, we'd 
like every woman to tear our instructions to shreds. That way you 
can give your guy Hai Karate, with some instructions of your own. 

Hai Karate-be careful how you use it.

Singing Workshop 
Is Held At NSC 

About 70 students from all 
over Louisiana, out of an expect- 
ed 100, were present for the 
third annual Workshop for 
Young Singers held Saturday in 
the NSC Little Theater. 

From amoung the students at- 
tending, 14 were chosen to give 
a recital that evening. Those 
chosen were as follows: Lovis 
Yeats, Rita Warner, Ouachita 
Parish High School; Steve Lau- 
rence, Jacqueline Davis, Bonnie 
Williams, Leesville High School; 
Bill Traylor, Carol Almand, 
Haynesville High; Carol Melan- 
con, Ramone LeVasseur, St. 
Mary's; Lanena Anderson, Sally 
Phillips, Eddie Huey, Woodlawn; 
Deborah McCuller, Bossier City; 
and Mary Riggins, Houma. 

After hearing about the NSC 
campus and viewing it, a number 
of the participants auditioned for 
vocal scholarships. 

Dr. Joseph Carlucci, head of 
the NSC Music Department, said 
the workshop was very success- 

The teachers who attended with 
their students were guests of the 
college at a luncheon Saturday 
afternoon where plans for next 
year's workshop were discussed. 

After the recital, all students 
were taken to the Student Union 
for a social hour which con- 
cluded the day's activities. 

Puppies Born In 
Prudhomme Hall 

What started out to be a run- 
of-the-mill Tuesday night at 
Northwestern for Paul Ferriss of 
Ferriday and Benny Mannies of 
Mansfield turned out to be any- 
thing but run-of-the-mill. That 
night, the two students were 
forced to play mid-wives to a 
pregnant pooch in Prudhomme 

According to Mannies, the dog 
wandered into Ferriss' room 
Tuesday evening and hopped on 
a bed. Realizing the mess she 
would eventually cause, the pair 
carried her down to a study room. 

At 6 a.m., a monitor awakened 
Mannies and Ferriss with the 
news of a new addition to the 
residence. Although neither are 
pre-medical students, they felt 
they knew enough to perform 

Student ID Cards, Concert As- 
sociation, or by single admissions 
which will be sold at the door. 

This concert will be the climax 
of a Festival of Baroque Music, 
to be presented February 23-25 
as a cooperative venture of the 
NSC Music Department, Dr. 
Joseph B. Carlucci, Head, and the 
Concert Association, John Le- 
Blanc, Jr., Chairman. Other pro- 
grams scheduled for the Festival 
are an organ and choral concert, 
a recital by students of the NSC 
Music Department and a concert 
by the Northwestern Chamber 
Orchestra and the Northwestern 
Baroque Quartet. 

The Bach Aria Group was or- 
ganized by William H. Scheide, 
its present director, in 1946, for 
the purpose of performing arias 
and duets from the cantatas of 
Johann Sebastian Bach. This re- 
pertoire is comparatively un- 
known, but remarkable for its

its infinite variety. In its twenty 
years of touring, the group has 
proven that Bach's music does 
have a tremendous appeal to 
large audiences throughout the 

Mr. Scheide has assembled one 
of the largest groups of famous 
performers in any group touring 
today. The singers include the 
well-known Canadian bass-bari- 
tone, Norman Farrow; the vel- 
vety contralto of the concert 
stage, Maureen Forrester; Great 
Britain's greatest tenor, Richard 
Lewis; and the extraordinarily 
gifted soprano of world-wide re- 
putation, Lois Marshall. Instru- 
mentalists recognized as tops in 
their field coming with the group 
are Samuel Baron, flutist with 
the New York Woodwind Quin- 
tet; Robert Bloom, former solo 
oboist with the Philadelphia Or- 
chestra and the NBC Symphony; 
Bernard Greenhouse, concert 
cellist; Oscar Shumsky, concert 
violinist and co-director of Can- 
ada's "Stratford Music Festival;" 
and Yehudi Wyner, pianist and 
composer who is on the faculty 
of Yale University. 

Mr. Scheide has become one of 
the foremost authorities on Bach 
as a result of his tireless research 
and his work in recreating this 
music. A graduate of Princeton 
and Columbia Universities, Mr. 
Scheide was a professor at Cor- 
nell University before he organ- 
ized and became full-time di- 
rector of the Bach Aria Group. 

Builders Service, Inc., of Nat- 
chitoches was the apparent low 
bidder on the construction of a 
new campus post office building 
at Northwestern State College. 

Northwestern officials said 
the Natchitoches firm submitted 
a base proposal of $36,352. Five 
other bids on the project ranged 
from $43,427 to $74,000. 

President Kilpatrick said all 
of the bids will be taken under 
advisement by the State Board of 
Education before a contract is 

In their proposal, Builders 
Service listed a completion date 
of 180 days from the time the 
contract is granted. 

Designed by Perry Segura and 
Associates of New Iberia, the 
facility will be located between 
the Student Union and the new 
Arts and Sciences Building. 

The post office will be a round, 
one-story structure and will be 
completely air-conditioned. Mail 
service for faculty, staff and stu- 
dents is expected to be doubled 
by the new building, which will 
have some 2,800 square feet of 
floor area. 

Plans call for the installation 
of some 4,000 boxes in the new 
post office. The present facility, 
located in the Student Union 
Building, has some 2,000 mail 

Space now utilized by the post 
office will be used to expand 
the facilities of the Northwestern 
Bookstore. The expansion project 
will give the bookstore some 3,000 
more sauare feet of floor area on 
the first floor of the Student

According to Dr. Joseph Car- 
lucci, Music Dept. Head, Green

ther said, "Jimmie will be missed 
by faculty and students."
